Early Access Software

Get involved with this software as it develops.

Note: This Early Access software is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to use this software in its current state, then you should wait to see if it progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“SpaceSys aims to develop a comprehensive and ubiquitous VR user interface, pushing user experience to a new paradigm, yet providing a smooth interaction with / transition from existing 2D interfaces. While many features work great, others are not yet implemented or need some work before becoming a cohesive and polished experience.

Given that VR consumer market is not matured yet, we feel like early access is a great way to get feedback and provide enthusiasts and users with insight into what SpaceSys is capable of in current development stage.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“9-12 months”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“One of our next goals is Windows 10 support.

Polishing current core of SpaceSys, removing bugs, optimizing performance, etc

Hardware wise we definitely want to add Oculus Rift and Windows MR.
Vive controllers are also considered, but we want to gather user feedback first.

Additional environments such as a massive tropical island will be added soon, but we will
also take into consideration comments and wishes, and thus build specific kind of worlds.

Adding a VR Office - custom build environment designed to immerse user into predesigned
working space. This office has a benefit of a complicated working environment such as design
studios or architectural studios or programming studios to be set up and operated using VR.

User experience improvements - user fixed to a single point, content coming to user field of view; easier changing of the environment without leaving the application, multiple save sessions for having more instances of the environment based on user preference.

In the long run - we want to implement a multiuser feature allowing multiple users to share and interact within shared virtual space.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Spacesys is currently in beta development stage.
Here are the main implemented features in short:

- Various graphical environments to choose from and customize
- Complete OS 2D interface implemented in full 3D, including icons, folders, menus and windows
- Any kind of file / object manipulation (moving, copying, etc...) implemented in full 3D
- All sorts of shell operations and interactions with OS objects available in 3D either directly or through proper 3D context menus (opening, launching, etc...)
- 2D application windows available as proper 3D objects, each using its own virtual monitor (Windows 7 SP1 in current development stage).
- Application windows are fully interactive inside 3D environment, including routed mouse and keyboard input (Windows 7 SP1 currently)
- Application windows can be arranged, grouped and organized to best suit user's needs”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“As we move forward price will gradually raise, but it depends on the various factors yet to be determined.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We value user feedback highly and we shall take into consideration all constructive suggestions and comments while evaluating and prioritizing feature development and future roadmap.”

About This Software

SpaceSys is an application developed for HTC Vive to allow for fully immersive experience of running your computer in Virtual Reality.
Being first of its kind, SpaceSys features a full 3D 360 interface where a user can spatially organize their working space and finally break free of their single 2D monitor.

Key Features

  • run any Windows app inside VR
  • pick an environment to suit your needs
  • unlimited number of virtual screens (you are not limited by your single monitor/desktop)
  • create a control center panel, a grid of up to 9x9 applications
  • environment is NOT a wallpaper/360 photo, its a fully functional real 3D space
  • spatially organize your working space around the entire 3D environment
  • use clean, nondisruptive environments or graphically intensive for more details and possibilities
  • pick from where you've left off - system remembers exactly where you've pinpointed items in 3D space and what applications / documents you used
  • no need to take off the HMD - compute with your files, shortcuts, and folders, open documents or applications
  • drag, rotate and position windows/icons/menus/folders within the environment

SpaceSys installs on top of your operating system. It can be run inside Virtual Reality or as a 3D application.
There is a configuration panel in which you can pick the environment and customize all settings to your needs.

Full functionality currently available for Windows 7 SP1 only. Full Windows 10 support is currently being developed.
