Gear VR, Oculus VR and Samsung’s mobile-based virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD), is getting some very unique experiences this month. While the usual assortment of videogames are still coming in by the week, the Apps and Concepts areas are also getting some interesting additions. Among them is a new ‘immersive art’ experience from Shape Space VR artist Kevin Mack named ShapeSpace VR – Zen Parade, which is planned as the first of a number of releases from the studio.
This allows users to explore computer generated, ‘living’ sculptures in 3D and 360 degrees. “Shape Space VR is inspired by nature, technology, and transcendent visions,” the developer notes on an official website. “The health benefits of meditation and experiencing beauty through art and nature have been well established. Shape Space VR uses spatial presence and the science of perception to engage the imagination, inspire wonder, and enhance wellbeing. It is informed by research in a wide range of fields from neuroscience to artificial life.”
The experience can currently be downloaded for free as a 30 second demo and then the full title can be purchased from within the app itself for $4.99 USD. The full piece lasts for five minutes though a looping options is also available.
