February Half Term: Let’s Draw in Virtual Reality

Want to draw with light? Find a library near you over half-term
If you are interested in the emerging virtual reality world, then get to a Cheshire East Library over half-term. Researchers from the University of Manchester’s Institute for Cultural Practices are joining forces with SHIFT to do a  tour of Cheshire East Libraries from Feb 19th-24th. They will be bringing an HTC Vive kit to the libraries and offering people the chance to ‘have a go’ with Google Tilt brush, a 3D drawing tool.
Dr Jessica Symons, University of Manchester says, “The great thing about Tilt Brush is that anyone over 14 years old can have fun with it. It is very easy to use and no experience required. Remember playing with sparklers on Bonfire Night? It’s just like that but with lots of colours, no risk of getting burned and the image does not disappear!’
