Back in 2015 SpaceoutVR Inc. released a virtual reality (VR) portal app called Daydream.VR. Then in May this year the name was changed alongside a new update to Spaceout.VR. Today the company has announced the release of several new features in a massive update.
Available as a free download for iOS and Android smartphone devices, Spaceout.VR includes Headbangerz, allowing users to take the music stored on their device and put it into an on-rails coin collecting mini-game. The update adds new levels for Headbangerz, from Zen to Hardcore. The videogame itself has had a redesign with gems, power-ups, power-downs and obstacles now included.
And for those that like to explore the world a new Geospatial UI with Google Street View has been included, enabling viewers to teleport around the world, all in VR.
“At SpaceoutVR we are enabling personalized VR experiences,” said V Owen Bush, CEO of SpaceoutVR, Inc. We hope to enhance people’s lives by automagically transforming their personal media. With Spaceout.VR anyone with a smartphone can join the immersion age.”
