The Seattle Public Library will host a virtual reality (VR) recreational vehicle -- the VRVe, developed by Fearless360° -- for an afternoon of virtual and augmented reality from noon to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 9 at the Ballard Branch, 5614 22nd Ave. N.W., 206-684-4089 .

Library events are free and open to the public. Registration is not required. Free parking is available in the underground garage beneath the building.

Aboard the VRVe, attendees can:

Hear local artists explore the theme "Me/We: Our Future City in 360º" around a storytelling campfire

Take a virtual tour of U.S. national parks through View-Masters and VR headsets and learn how the technologies are connected

Experience "Reforestation of Imagination," an augmented reality (AR) flower bed with real and virtual flowers

Fearless360º is a start-up collective working at the intersection of arts, culture, education, storytelling and technology to develop content, programming and curriculum for immersive/VR/AR/360º media.
