Virtual Reality – Oculus Go

In this kit, you will find an Oculus Go loaded with apps to bring your patrons experiences, stories, and fun. Some of the apps provide 360-degree video, others provide a fully virtual experience of whole environments.


This kit is designed to be used by people 13 years of age and older. The Oculus VR company warns against those under 13 years of age using the product.

There will need to be a staff person or volunteer available while the equipment is in use to assist the user. Situational awareness, the awareness of your surroundings, while wearing the Oculus Go is extremely restricted. Do not leave the Oculus Go user alone in public space.

Most activities are designed for one person with a few exceptions. With the Oculus Go, walking is not necessary, but looking around is. We recommend a chair that turns all the way around (like an office desk chair) and enough space to spin in it with arms out.

We have included a User Agreement and we recommend you have every patron using the Oculus Go sign one. We have also included a User Agreement for Young adults (age 13-17) that should be signed by a parent or legal guardian. We do not need the signed User Agreements back, they are to release your institution from liability.
