VR Rooms (IMVU)
VR Rooms is a "Hands Free" first-person social experience for emerging virtual reality platforms. The first releases are focused on Mobile VR such as Google Cardboard and Gear VR. Once you have signed into IMVU and selected someone to chat with, you will be signed into the VR Room with that player. Once in VR mode, the gaze or where you are looking is the only input used. You can walk around the room and soon interact with objects and sit down, etc. Only using gaze as input allows people with disabilities and those without controllers to play. The game also takes advantage of the full 360 degree movements possible with Mobile VR, and is definitely a candidate for a comfortable "swivel chair" experience.

All bleeding edge technologies and we are proud to announce our game also runs great on Gear VR hardware! A lot of effort has been put into learning mobile VR's current capabilities, fine tuning optimizations, and learning best methods for VR development. We believe APK size, loading times, battery usage/heat, very high framerates, are all critical to mobile VR development.
