Heroes Hall: Bravemind Exhibit

Heroes Hall Bravemind Exhibit

Technology to discover at the OC Fair is the Bravemind Exhibit at Heroes Hall. Built by USC’s Institute for Creative Technologies, Bravemind is a virtual reality experience that enhances pre-existing therapeutic techniques for post-traumatic stress. Individuals who are currently serving can also use this VR for resilience training before they are deployed.

The Bravemind exhibit will be held at Heroes Hall, a space dedicated to the veterans of Orange County. The VR segments of this first-hand exhibit consist of a virtual world of war along with other scenes designed to help veterans recover from PTSD. In addition to learning about the technical aspects behind Bravemind, visitors will also hear testimonies from those who were helped with the use of this technology, thus making it a valuable resource for helping military personnel and veterans.

Admission is free. Hours: 11 am – 5 pm, Wednesday through Sunday (closed Monday and Tuesday). Closed holidays.
