For those who wish to know what Voxelus is all about, it is a platform that different people can use to create as well as play and share different virtual reality games. They can do so without having to develop source codes from scratch.
There are free assets provided on this platform that one can use for creating different kinds of virtual games and there are innovative content provided here frequently for virtual reality game and content enthusiasts.
Beginning of Voxelus
This project was started in November 2014. At such a time VR was a new concept and there was not much know how about how it would benefit and the different market segments that it would appeal to. It is definite that it is a form of disruptive technology that changes the standard notions which we work on in traditional three dimension space.
Voxelus has created a niche in this domain by providing a platform for creating; sharing and enabling free content in VR. The possibilities with VR are endless and technology is developing different means of enabling VR content. This is being made evident with different devices like tablets and smart phones. There was consensus about VR and its capabilities by 2015 and most of them are reality today.
Vision of Voxelus is about enabling anyone to build an immersive experience and being able to share the same. Even if one does not know programming skills they can work with the technology and tools provided on this platform. Even small kids with an interest in technology are able to build a world of VR games and be able to upload the same as well as play the same on VR devices.
At the time Voxelus was started it was conceived as a VR application; today VR can be experienced with motion controllers which can be available for hardcore VR as well as mobile VR devices. The VR application platform that Voxelus provides is an all in one application and is not specific of PC or Mac software.
Changes From Beginning to Current Times
There have been certain changes brought to this application. Since 2014 initial times was a mixed platform, but today it is a VR only platform. One can build as well as experience different VR games on this platform. This change is made available as a gear VR application at the Samsung Gear VR store.
For those who wonder how it works, it is similar to Minecraft. For those who have played with Minecraft will find it easy to build games and experiences on Voxelus. There are several flexible choices and tools available for the creators. The controller tool allows one to take interactions and building efforts to the next level.
The company has certain goals that it wishes to achieve by the end of the year. They are working on two mobile VR platforms that are Google Daydream and Samsung Gear VR for which motion controllers are being integrated. There would be porting options available for Google Daydream. Unity is another platform to which porting activities are going on. Even after these launches are done there would be reviews and testimonials taken from customers in order to improve these porting abilities.
There is more on offer for the customers such as new shaders, rebuilding and uploading new assets to the servers, improving performance as well as preventing phone overheating. The website continues to grow in the VR community with more improvements and offerings.
