This morning, MyDream Interactive announced that VR Toolbox, which remains the only commercially available 360 desktop solution developed for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, is now available as a Free Demo.
“Designed for both productivity and entertainment, VR Toolbox allows the VR enthusiast to run desktop applications, games and enjoy all formats of videos. The solution is available for Windows 8 and Windows 10,” the company tells us.
While the demo comes at no charge, VR Toolbox is available for $13.99 on the Steam Store.
VR Toolbox offers a VR ‘mission control,’ enabling users to personalize their rooms with their own 3D art. From the debris of the cosmos, to an art deco theater, users are free to create their own environment and enjoy movies, 360 videos, gaming, live streaming, social media, as well as any desktop productivity app they would normally run on their PC. Desktop productivity is possible due to a special safety feature called “Blended Reality,” which allows the users to see their hands and feet in VR.
If you’re not familiar, VR Toolbox is a collaboration of MyDream Interactive and a seasoned group of passionate graphics and VR developers Rouslan Dimitrov and Scott Cutler.
“We care about making Virtual Reality useful, fun and safe for our customers,” said Allison Huynh, CEO at MyDream Interactive. “We set out to create a set of tools to enhance the capabilities of the modern HMD, beyond gaming, for our own needs. We hope others will find our tools useful as well.”
