Emerging Media Lab – Drop-ins

EML at TEC Expo 2017

The Emerging Media Lab (EML) featured a VR station at the 4th Annual TEC Expo . Attendees had a chance to immerse themselves in a virtual environment using the HTC Vive, from slashing virtual fruits in Fruit Ninja VR, painting in Google Tilt brush, to facing their fear of heights in Richie’s Plank Experience on maker-day.

EML drop-in session

If you missed the opportunity to try out the VR station at the TEC Expo, come to the Emerging Media Lab’s drop-in sessions happening every Tuesday and Thursday from 12 pm – 1:30 pm in Scarfe room 01.  The drop-in sessions are open to all UBC faculty, staff and students. Come to try VR games, check out VR projects that are happening on campus, and find out the resources available at the EML. You don’t need to set-up an appointment and drop-ins are on first-come, first-served basis.

Orientation Sessions

EML also offers a 90-minute orientation session every last Wednesday of the month. This includes an introduction to the available tools at the EML, current projects, how you can get involved, and hands on demo of the tools.
