You have probably noticed: The hype around Virtual Reality lasts unsurprisingly, and with various companies launching new or updates of their VR devices, the excitement is even growing. You haven’t experienced it yet? We have just the treat for you.
Come visit us at our Stand at Maker Faire Rome because would like to invite you to experience Virtual Reality yourself – the Mouser way. We created a special short video that gives you behind-the-scenes insights of our operations. At this year’s Maker Faire, we’ll hand out VR cardboards that let you travel through the magic world of our Texas warehouse. Learn how every component is handled, how it makes its way through the warehouse, is packed and shipped.
Even Mouser’s partner Cypress plays a role to make Virtual Reality happen. The well-known VR headset Oculus Rift features the company’s HX3 USB 3.0 Hub Controllers, which allows multiple USB-connected devices to be plugged in at the same time.
Besides this, Cypress fosters many Maker projects with the right products and tools. Come visit us and see how Cypress enables the Maker movement with open source development tools and free software.
