VR users can now download a free demo of VR Toolbox by MyDream Interactive, the only commercially available 360 desktop solution developed for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. 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.
VR Toolbox offers a VR ‘mission control,’ enabling users to personalize their rooms with their own 3D art 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 users to see their hands and feet in VR.
“We care about making Virtual Reality useful, fun and safe for our customers,” said Allison Huynh, founder and 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.”
Pricing And Availability
VR Toolbox is available for $13.99 in North America, Europe and throughout the world, except for China. The free watermarked demo is available on Steam.
