Virtual Reality Dome


1871 is a major hub of Chicago’s technology and entrepreneurial ecosystem. TGIF is a weekly happy hour open to 1871 members. Midwest Immersive made this happy-hour extra special for the community by setting up The Virtual Reality Dome.

The VR Dome was created to not only give community members their first ever Virtual Reality Experience, but also to educate them on how these emerging technologies are already disrupting a broad range of industries.

Midwest Immersive provided two distinct experiences that inspired and entertained visitors on the possibilities of this new computing platform. Participants were able to enjoy Tilt Brush and the VirZOOM VR bike as a way to taste the possibilities of what VR can offer.
