Chrome support allows to integrate content from any Internet source to enable next-level personalization and productivity in virtual reality
Virtual Reality company and development studio MyDream Interactive Inc. (http://www.mydreamvr.com/) today released Chrome support for LightVR, providing the first personal VR desktop to integrate content from any Internet source. Now available for early access, LightVR (http://lightvr.co/) offers a Chrome interface that enables personalized virtual-reality spaces sourced from any photo or content available online. LightVR’s Steam integration provides multiple screens, three-dimensional props, and customizable environments all on a multi-window interface.
LightVR lets users view their Windows desktop, web apps, games, and more, all within virtual reality. Virtual environments are fully customizable in LightVR, with the option to either make a virtual space replicate your home with wood floors, colored walls, personal photographs, and video loops; or to simulate a faraway place like a castle or tropical beach. Once a virtual environment is individualized, users can effectively multi-task by viewing multiple windows and apps without removing the VR headset.
Enabling simultaneous virtual and real-world interaction, LightVR provides users with a one-of-a-kind “blended reality” experience. Blended reality makes virtual reality more approachable by combating issues, like nausea, that are common to new VR headset users. LightVR’s goal is to provide a virtual desktop experience that people can use for longer than a few minutes at a time. With multiple screens, blended reality, gesture controls, and full personalization, LightVR makes it easier to minimize interruptions in the VR experience.
