Oculus Virtual Reality 3-D Printer
Virtual reality is a fascinating way to travel using nothing more than the power of technology. With a headset and motion tracking, VR lets you look around a virtual space as if you’re actually there, or play a game as though you’re in it.

3D printing isn’t just about making things, no more than reading a novel is about getting to the last sentence in the book. It’s about learning, testing the limits of your creativity, finding new solutions to old problems, and participating in a rapidly changing and growing field of technology!
