    Q: What does this feature include?

     

    A: VR support for multiple devices, an interactive clip cube option (a new button available on the corner of the screen) and shadows with a directional light that also comes with a new control to designate the direction of this light in respect to the viewer.

    A:

    1. Make sure you have Firefox 55 or above downloaded on a Windows machine. You must also install Steam and the SteamVR app (http://store.steampowered.com/about/). WebVR with Vive will not work without these requirements.
    2. Once you have all of these requirements, setup your HTC Vive using the SteamVR app. Follow all of the instructions displayed on the screen.
    3. Once you have set up your HTC Vive on your PC, open the following link in Firefox while SteamVR is open: https://threejs.org/examples/webvr_cubes.html You should see a button that says “ENTER VR”.
    4. Select this button and the sample will display the scene to your Vive.  If this does not work, please let us know.
    5. Open the Web View link in Firefox, click the “360” button, and then click the googles button to view in VR.

    A:

               

    1. Make sure you have Firefox 55 or Firefox 56 downloaded on a Windows machine. Firefox 57 current has a problem with recognizing the Oculus. Hopefully this will be fixed soon. WebVR with Oculus will not work without this requirement.
    2. Once you have set up your Oculus on your PC, open the following link in Firefox: https://threejs.org/examples/webvr_cubes.html . You should see a button that says “ENTER VR”. Select this button and the sample will display the scene to your Oculus.  If this does not work, please let us know.
    3. Open the Web View link in Firefox, click the “360” button, and then click the googles button to view in VR.

    A:

    1. Make sure you have the following:
      1. A Google Daydream ready device (please go here to see all compatible devices : https://vr.google.com/daydream/smartphonevr/phones/ )
      2. Google Daydream app installed on the phone
      3. Google VR services installed on the phone
      4. Chrome 62 or above
    2. In addition to these requirements, you need to enable webvr for your mobile browser. Type “chrome://flags/” into the URL. Search for “WebVR” and enable the WebVR flag shown.
    3. Open the following link in mobile Chrome with your Daydream ready phone: https://threejs.org/examples/webvr_cubes.html . You should see a button that says “ENTER VR”. Select this button and the sample will display the scene to your Oculus.  If this does not work, please let us know.
    4. Open the Web View link in Chrome, click the “360” button, and the app should ask you to place the phone into the Daydream. Once it is in here, it will show the scene in VR.
