WATCH: Gear Up app gives a virtual tour of UNC System campuses

The UNC System collaborated with the team of Steven King, assistant professor at the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media, and the SeeBoundless company to produce the Gear Up app. The virtual reality app allows students to remotely tour the system’s 17 colleges across North Carolina without ever leaving their homes—and at an affordable cost. The app utilizes the operator’s cell phone and an inexpensive cardboard headset, one more way King and the team at Reese Innovation Lab  are making technology useful, accessible and innovative.
