Simbridge is a simulated virtual Noisebridge hackerspace you can edit on GitLab and visit in VRChat.


Simbridge serves several purposes.

  • Education: To enable newcomers to learn about the space and what it offers.
  • Planning: To enable Noisebridgers working on Layout and Build planning to visualize proposed changes to the space itself.
  • History: To record historical information including 3D scans and layout changes from all of Noisebridge's iterations.

How to visit Simbridge in VRChat[edit]

You don't even need a VR headset to visit Simbridge in PC Windows SteamVR. It works with keyboard and mouse as well.

  1. Install VRChat for Windows via Steam or for Android via Oculus Quest Store.
  2. Launch VRChat. You can use it with keyboard and mouse or with a VR headset plugged in.
  3. Create VRChat account. Write down your login and password in your password manager.
  4. Enable Community Labs:
    1. In VRChat, open the menu with your left controller button.
    2. Choose Settings.
    3. Enable Community Labs to be able to see unapproved community created worlds.
    4. The minimized version of settings doesn't show this option so click the expand button to see all the options.
  5. Find Simbridge and visit:
    1. On PC Steam: To visit Simbridge, click our Simbridge VRCW.NET page and click the Public button. You have to have launched VRChat from Steam at least once for it to pick up VRChat links from browsers.
