This half-day workshop, presented by early adopters and library practitioners, shares what it takes to start a community program based around AR and VR. During the workshop, participants gain an appreciation of the history of this bleeding-edge technology and learn how all the basic hardware/ software components work to create engaging experiences in your library and far beyond it. An HTC Vive, Microsoft HoloLens, Google Cardboard, a DIY hologram viewer, and other technologies are present, so participants have an opportunity to play with all the latest and greatest AR/VR technologies as well as identify opportunities to use these technologies in their communities.
