Virtual reality experiences can now reach a bigger audience, thanks to a new move made by Google today. WebVR, which allow developers to add VR features to their websites, can now be experienced when viewing those sites with the Chrome browser while also wearing Google Cardboard headsets. WebVR support was previously added for owners of Google’s Daydream View headset.
In addition to the new Cardboard support, Google has launched a new site called WebVR Experiments. It offers Cardboard and Daydream View owners with Chrome a way to check out some very interesting VR games and experiences that have been made with these tools.
They include a VR ping pong game called Konterball, a music-based site called Under Neon Lights, and a very odd game called Mr Nom Nom. In this title, you have to move around a donut and have it collect red dots. Those dots extend the length of its scarf, which can be used to encircle and trap other strange looking creatures who, naturally, are trying to eat the donut. Make sense?
Google added that that it plans to add WebVR support in Chrome for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift VR headsets in the very near future. In the meantime, what do you think of WebVR support being added for Cardboard? Let us know in the comments!
