Reinventing Reality, presented by M&T Bank, explores the science, creativity, and innovation behind one of the fastest evolving technologies, virtual reality, and how it’s transforming the way we see and interact with the world.
The exhibition combines STEM concepts with playful interactives to reveal how individual elements of VR work. Visitors see their 3-D bodies mapped out as a colorful cloud of dots, feel the peculiar sensation of being in a virtual body and step into spectacular virtual worlds. Looking into a giant stereoscope viewer, interacting with the latest eye-tracking technology and visiting immersive virtual worlds, visitors discover how VR uses—and sometimes fools—our senses to make the virtual world seem real.
