Over the last few months more than a 100 visitors to Portobello, Muirhouse, Drumbrae, Leith, Oxgangs and Wester Hailes Libraries have had the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Berlin Blitz by flying over Berlin with the crew of a Lancaster Bomber, encounter gorillas in the Congo and travel in Dr Who’s Tardis courtesy of the BBC Virtual Reality Libraries Tour.
The BBC created new and unique VR experiences for public libraries in the UK.
For most of the participants they were trying a VR headset for the first time and everyone enjoyed the experience and would like to have the opportunity to try it again.
