Following the debut of the Android version of Orbulus last year, VRCraftworks have now launched the iOS edition of the virtual reality (VR) application. Designed specifically for the iPhone 6, this photo viewer app allows users to view stereoscopic 3D images through a phone-based head-mounted display (HMD), such as Altergaze, Durovis Dive or even Google Cardboard.
Orbulus is designed to be a hands-free photo viewer. The user controls the experience just by looking at things; menu selection is offered through gaze control. At present, Orbulus offers a number of unique images: travel the world, stand on Mars, experience the magic of King Arthur’s Glastonbury Tor, get married, visit the Salt Flats, experience New Year’s Fireworks on Hong Kong Harbour or chill looking at the Northern Lights. More experiences will be added over time.
