Looking for an alternative way to celebrate Canada 150? Don’t miss your chance to immerse yourself in an array of Canadian Virtual Reality (VR) works at the “Pulse on VR” Exhibition taking place at the House of VR in Toronto from June 27 to July 2.

Curated by the Canadian Film Centre’s Media Lab, these award-winning VR productions include experiences that allow you to: walk within, around and through a sixteenth-century gothic bead that fits in the palm of your hand; survive VR bullet hell with Blasters of the Universe; solve puzzles in an environment that pays homage to ’80s sci-fi/fantasy movies like The Dark Crystal (1982) and the Indiana Jones series; bring out your inner artist with MasterpieceVR, the world’s first collaborative 3D painting, sculpting and modelling program for virtual reality; and be transported to the middle of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's historic visit to Shoal Lake 40, a First Nation in Canada without access to clean water; and much more!

Participating companies are: Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), Brinx, CFC Media Lab, Cloudhead Games, Felix & Paul, NFB, Occupied VR, Seneca College, Vice.
