VR project brings the world to Oxford

Have you ever wanted to fly around one of your favorite cities or tour a historic art gallery? Oxford students can do just that without leaving campus by using virtual reality (VR).

By simply putting on a headset, students can end up in a different world – without needing to book a plane ticket or miss class. Oxford has used the HTC VIVE Virtual Reality System for academics since 2016, but now the entire campus can experience it.
