In partnership with D3D Cinema, the Museum is hosting two Birdly flight simulators in Fawick Gallery. Birdly’s immersive technology will take you on a full-body, perfectly synchronized virtual-reality journey. Choose from a selection of flying avatars, from pterosaurs to birds, and enjoy the North American premiere of Butterfly, a new garden/pollinator POV flight simulator using next-level gaming graphics.

Birdly’s precise sensory-motor integration delivers an exhilarating, breathtaking experience. Through a synthesis of haptic engineering, robotics, game design, and biomechanics, Birdly eliminates the queasiness-inducing sensory disconnect of conventional VR.

A head-mounted display will immerse you in a high-resolution virtual landscape filled with interactive zones and entertaining surprises. During your “flight” you may instinctively move your arms and hands—the same way a bird would flap its wings and manipulate its feathers to navigate and control speed and altitude. Each input is reflected in the virtual flight processor and returned as physical feedback through various movements.

Get ready to take flight and explore the world from a thrilling new perspective.

The Birdly experience is available for an additional fee of $5 for members and nonmembers. Birdly machines are designed to be wheelchair accessible.

Minimum height requirement: 48″
Maximum weight restriction: 395 lbs.
