The Navy’s Virtual Reality Experience, the Nimitz, along with recruiters will be at MoSH June 15th and 16th during normal museum hours to spread Navy awareness in the community and give participants a 360-degree virtual reality view of what it’s like to be on a special warfare mission. The immersive mobile experience includes a video briefing before strapping on an Oculus Rift headset and a piece of wearable technology called a SubPac that percusses in real time to the sounds of the mission. Participants will navigate the mission using a cutting-edge steering wheel and throttle system that replicates the actual sensation of piloting a high-speed Special Warfare Combatant-Craft while extracting SEALs.
