Texas A&M University will be showcasing innovative work through virtual reality starting today at South By Southwest.

In their first year as a sponsor of the SXSW festival, the university brings a unique experience to viewers to expose the research and excitement that the school has to offer. Viewers will be able to take a tour on the A&M campus, jump into the stands with tens of thousands of Aggie football fans, and much more.

"24 Hours of Global Impact" is a one-of-a-kind virtual reality experience featuring on-campus interviews with students, alumni, and researchers. The attraction is located at the "Texas A&M House" at Hotel Van Zandt and the Texas A&M Exhibit Booth at the Austin Convention Center.

Viewers can check out this virtual reality experience starting today through March 15th. If you aren't able to make it to one of the two sites, you can check out a playlist of 360 videos here on your desktop or mobile devices. Simply move your mouse or mobile device to change your view at any time throughout the video.
