Inside Reinventing Reality, visitors will learn about how perception, displays, digital models, tracking and engineering bring virtual and augmented reality to life.
Utilizing the latest VR technology, visitors can virtually create, compete, and explore with other visitors. Hands-on, inquiry-based exhibits encourage visitors to experiment with electronics, software, and perceptual illusions to discover the surprising science and technology behind virtual reality.
