About this event

Hey Folks!


Claude Moore Health Sci Library
1300 Jefferson Park Avenue, 
Charlottesville, VA 

The Health Sciences Library @ University of Virginia is a little tricky to find if you are not familiar with how to get there, so we are going to meet at OpenGrounds on University Avenue and walk over to the HSL together!

We have access to an HTC Vive that runs Google Tilt Brush.   And we have Cardboard...if you have Cardboard, please bring it so there are more for everyone!

Anson Parker, a systems engineer at the UVa Health Science Library, has been working with Google Tilt Brush and Google Cardboard to help him design and build furniture.  Come check out the process of going from one VR realm to another using Blender as an intermediary - it's a lot of fun, and incredibly helpful for doing quick sketches for clients.

Open to some other VR ideas if anyone is interested in pitching them.

Lunch will be provided by Mellow Mushroom!

Rock on,

Starrie, Jossay, Angela, and Anson
