Today’s 360 VR Buzz: ‘Virtual Desktop’ Arrives On Oculus Go & Gear VR This Week

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

Released back in March of 2016, Virtual Desktop is a handy utility application that allows users the ability to view and access their desktop computer from the comfort of their Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, or WMR headset.

Previously available strictly on PC VR headsets, creator Guy Gordin recently revealed that a version of the tool optimized for mobile platforms will launch on the Oculus Go and Samsung Gear VR later this week, with plans for an Oculus Quest release planned sometime next year.

Users will be able to connect their mobile headsets to their desktop through WiFi or via the internet by enabling UPnP on your router.

Much like its PC-based predecessor, the app offers touch input support via Window’s native touch keyboard, as well as Bluetooth mice, gamepads, and various other keyboards for a unique,

yet familiar web browsing experience. Users are also free to use the Oculus Go and Gear VR 3DoF controllers to navigate the app as if using a conventional mouse. There’s also the ability to alternate between four individual computer systems at a time, all in a matter of seconds.

According to a Reddit post made by Gordin, the mobile version includes a 20ms + network latency versus what you see on the monitor; a limitation he claims isn’t much of an issue, so long as you’re not playing competitive Counter-Strike: GO.

Other restrictions include slight latency on devices connected via Bluetooth, as well as the inability to view multiple desktops simultaneously for a multimonitor virtual setup.
