Fitness VR challenge "Supernatural" from With.in
Week five of captivity. We’re spending more time in XR collaboration and conferencing sites. Writing a book about it is our excuse. Also, it keeps us from thinking about the Zombie apocalypse.
This week’s top story is from Within, best known as a 360 video site that’s integrated into every VR platform, and for its AR app for kids, Wonderscope. While the stay-at-home orders raise all boats on the Internet, it doesn’t take a genius to see Within can’t last much longer without a hit. We just tried their upcoming Supernatural VR fitness game, coming to the Oculus Quest and other platforms next Thursday, and it looks to us like director turned CEO Chris Milk may have hit the three pointer at the buzzer.
That’s all the basketball we’ve got for now.
