Window to the Worldby Aurel Manea
This is a photographic experiment. It represents what can be achieved using classical landscape photography and virtual reality as means of expression.
As a photographer and VR enthusiast I have always dreamed about a way of expressing photography as close as possible to the actual moment of capture, about the moment when reality and photography converge. The first trial was a couple of years ago when I took some photos and made a short film based on the famous parallax techniques but with a twist. The twist was that everything was now in actual 3d and not jost 2D layers. The next step was giving the viwer a bit of input and so came to be the online webgl version. The final step was full immersion, so VR was very natural. It was a long way from photography first, than to a parallax video, after that WebGL and in the end VR. Here is the history of the project: http://aurelm.com/fully-3d-interactive-photography/
What is SideloadVR?
SideloadVR builds custom GearVR .apks that include the user's signature file. This means that developers can share their ideas without going through Oculus Home and the global signing process.
SideloadVR is built on the idea of an open system, where developers can freely share their content with an extended tester user base.
If you are a developer and want to be included in SideloadVR, please fill out this form and we will get back to you.
Who is VR Bits?
VR Bits is creating immersive Virtual Reality content in cooperation with VR industry leaders such as Oculus VR, Sony, Samsung and Google. We love Virtual Reality and want developers to be able to share their ideas freely.
