Reinventing Reality

Reinventing Reality explores the science, creativity, and innovation behind one of the fastest evolving technologies, virtual reality. Collaborating with friends and families, visitors will investigate how virtual reality works 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 colourful 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.

Reinventing Reality also introduces visitors to the social impacts of VR. From treating patients to training astronauts and designing cars and new products, the creation of simulated experiences in Virtual Reality impacts almost every industry. Presented in English and French, Reinventing Reality sparks the imagination of kids and teens, encouraging them to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
