WEARVR Signs Partnerships With Nibiru, Pico Interactive And VR Japan

Independent VR and AR app store WEARVR has signed new content partnerships with Nibiru, Pico Interactive Inc and VR Japan.

The deal means over 6,000 developers registered as WEARVR dev partners can also distribute their content to new VR platforms and territories, including China and Japan.

Real Deal

Nibiru has developed an operating system for VR headsets that is licensed to third-party hardware manufacturers such as Qualcomm, HP, BOE, Fujitsu and Polaroid.

Through this partnership, WEARVR ported content will be available on the app store embedded into the OS, and therefore on a number of third-party devices that utilise it.

VR Japan meanwhile distributes Idealens K2 in Japan, while Pico is working on the all-in-one headset Goblin for the US and European markets. WEARVR content will now be available on the built-in app stores for these devices too.

“These initial partnerships between new and exciting VR hardware companies and WEARVR make perfect sense,” says WEARVR CEO Nic Mitham.

“We already provide an independent VR marketplace containing an enviable range of multi-platform VR experiences and enjoy a long-standing relationship with the VR developer community.”
