  1. Just ordered our Oculus Rift and a dedicated PC so that we can join in the Belle II VR fun! 🙂 Looking forward to using it for our outreach efforts in our schools nearby (and in our 2nd year Modern Physics & Particle Physics classes)

    1. Hi Todd, that’s fantastic! Please feel free to reach out to use for assistance with the simulation, and let us know how it works for you!
