Get involved with this software as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Virtual Space is a VR desktop application we built to provide a true VR Desktop experience to our users. We have finished our alpha version which enable our user to have a bigscreen media experience as well as a 360 video/photo player which allow users to play 180/360 VR contents. But it is still far from our vision of what a true next Gen VR Desktop should be. Therefore we need your feedback and support to help us build a true next gen desktop. Our dream is to one day transform the way you will interact with you personal computer and digital entertainment.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“We are expecting the application to be in Early Access for about 1 to 2 years.”

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

“We plan on bring in the old windows desktop environment into a virtual space and manipulate it in a way that fits with the new VR hardware and tool sets that are currently available. Creating a comfortable and intuitive VR desktop experience for our users.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Even though this build is is still in its alpha state with basic functionalities, we have completed the core features which we believe will be valuable to enhance the current VR experiences. We have completed the following features for this early access build:
1. Displaying Windows Desktop in a VR environment.
2. Play game and watch movie in a virtual theater.
3. Stream 360 video directly from Youtube (No download, no wait)
4. Native 3D video player to play 3D video (side by side or over and under videos).
5. Native 360 video player to Play 180/360 degree video.
6. Native 360 Photo Gallery App to view 360 images
7. Beautiful Live VR environments.
8. Set custom VR environment using your own 360 images.

We are fixing any crash and bug we're encountering as we test it further, please do not hesitate to inform us of any bug/crashes.”

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

“No, we intended to keep this application free of charge as long as we are still around.”

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

“Our goal is to build an app which is intuitive and extremely easy to use. As a developer, we know the application far too well, sometimes we lose the ability to judge whether a feature/process offer a better user experience. Thus we can use every single member's help to help us improve our app.”

v0.121 Update

This new update that should fix smart streaming function that was broken by a recent windows update and youtube streaming issue with the video not playing back in correct mode/format.

Update to Unreal Engine 4.19 and new capturing method is still in the works. Sorry for the delay but we're running into a lot of walls/issues. The update to Unreal 4.19 should come out in a bit though, just got a few more obsolete functions to update and we should be good to go.

V0.119 Update

We have just released the v0.119 update with point-and-click function for the motion controllers. Sorry for the delay, it was a lot more difficult than we had anticipated.

This patch also includes fixes for various virtual keyboard and motion controller bug that we missed in the previous build.

Currently there's an issue with our streaming function not streaming HD version of the videos for Youtube. That's due to an recent update on Youtube's end, we're looking to adjust our streaming functionality so that it plays the proper version of the video, should be done in a couple of days.

For users who have been experiencing CTD during start of the app. If it's due to a security prompt, simply accept the security prompt, restart the app afterwards and it should start fine next time once the security prompt stops showing up. For user's who just can't start the app no matter what, we have narrowed the crash issue down to our screen capturing function. So next thing we need to do is to scan and test that part of the code thoroughly and patch up any potential issues that we find. At the moment we're looking to release that crash patch.
