By now you’re probably aware that the world’s first truly virtual reality home cinema experience is now available on the HTC Vive, and it’s being used by a wide range of people to record and share their favorite moments.
That’s why, for anyone who’s ever been to a movie theatre and seen something that made them cry, we’re so excited to announce that we’re bringing that same experience to VR!
The new HTC Vive is available today, and we can’t wait to see how it goes!
We’ve seen a number of VR experiences with people playing with their friends, and in this VR home cinema, you can feel as if you’re a part of the movie itself, watching people’s reactions, and even touching the people you’re watching.
To make this a great experience for you, we’ve made a number more improvements to the experience, including: More immersive and interactive virtual reality.
You now can play with your friends in a virtual theatre as they enjoy a movie.
This allows you to feel as though you’re the one playing, and not just watching.
The ability to watch the movie in a more immersive manner.
In addition to being able to play with friends, you’re able to watch it in the most immersive manner possible, and feel like you’re actually there with them in the movie.
More detailed tracking.
As a virtual cinema, the HTC VR system has a new tracking system that’s more detailed than the standard HTC Vive.
This means that it’s more realistic to look at your face when you’re looking at the screen, and your eyes when you see the movie on the screen.
With this tracking system, you’ll feel as much of the real world as possible.
More personalized experiences.
You’ll now be able to customize the experience for your own needs and preferences, allowing you to create your own home theatre experience.
We’re also adding the ability to see the film’s music in your virtual home theatre, and sharing the experience with a friend.
This feature will be included in the HTC Home theater app, and will be available in the Vive app for now.
And if you don’t want to be in the middle of a movie when it’s over, you have the option to play in the background.
This option will be added to the HTC VIVE later this year.
We know that it takes a lot of time and effort to create a great home cinema movie experience, and this is just the beginning.
The new home cinema feature will roll out over the coming months, so be sure to check back to see if we’re able at some point to bring it to the Vive!
And don’t forget, we are also introducing a whole bunch of other improvements in the next few months to the Oculus Home VR app, including a new way to watch videos from other VR devices.
So stay tuned, and be sure you check out our HTC Vive page to see what we’ve been working on.
