BigScreen company is working on software that will take Windows desktop in virtual reality
Virtual reality will change everything – from the way we play video games to how we work on the computer. Currently facing tech companies is one very serious problem with the transfer of the physical display to a virtual environment, or, rather, what we see on the physical display.
The company BigScreen thinks in this direction. It is developing software that in conjunction with the virtual reality helmet will take the Windows interface in VR environment. This will allow you to watch movies, play games, and more on a huge virtual screen. In addition, the creators promise that their software can see the virtual monitors buddies and personalized avatars to each of the «present» in the virtual room.
Right now you can sign up to test the public beta version of the software from the BigScreen, which will be available for both the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift when they are released in April and the Samsung Gear VR later this year.
Most likely, the development of BigScreen will be a niche product, because to use not only expensive virtual reality glasses, but a fairly powerful computer, but it is an important step in the development of virtual reality technology.
