Competition: Move Fast To Enter This Ludicrous Speed Prize Draw

The end of the week is here once again, and that of course means (now that E3 is out of the way for another year) that it’s competition time here on VRFocus. This time you’ll be wanting to probably stretch your muscles in advance because the virtual reality (VR) videogame we’re offering codes for is…

Life In 360°: Thou, My Most Beauteous Land

Wednesday’s stop back in the UK was a nice change of pace, and since writing that article a number of other videos featuring looks inside high concept design buildings have popped up on my search thanks to Google’s little algorithms. But I’m going to save those (if there are any of particular interest, that is)…

Animal Force To Deploy Onto The PlayStation Store For The U.S. Next Month

PlayStation VR owners might well recall videogame publisher Oasis Games. The Chinese company, formed in 2011, is one of several of the more prolific publishers of virtual reality (VR) videogames. Including puzzle adventure title Light Tracer, escape room horror Dying: Reborn and colourful pixel-stylised shoot-em-up Pixel Gear. The latter of which was the recipient of…

Life In 360°: Stop At The Serpentine

Over the year or so on VRFocus we’ve seen a big rise in the number of stories that we have covered which revolve around the use of virtual reality (VR) in the fields of architecture and design. However, that’s a subject that has strangely been avoided on Life In 360° for the most part. Kind…

VR vs. E3 2018 In Absentia Alternative Awards

Welcome once again to VR vs. The weekly opinion piece written by ‘the one who isn’t a writer’ on VRFocus, because… well, I can’t even remember why any more. But I’ve been doing this for long enough to be able to welcome you, for the third year running, to my In Absentia Alternative Awards. That’s…

Secure Your Bloodline And The Kingdom In Wonfourn

In an age of swords, castles and dragons kingdoms set stock in the bloodline of the royals. The needs of the kingdom are absolute and it is up to those of the bloodline in order to lead by example, defend the borders, bring order to the common folk and glory to the country and your…

Friends & Trading Coming To Pokémon GO

Since its launch back in 2016 Pokémon GO has gone through a number of evolutions – none of which has thankfully involved using a Sun Stone, or a Kings Rock or a Dragon Scale or anything like that. Throughout the lifespan of the augmented reality (AR) supporting title, however, Niantic Labs have moved to keep…

Life in 360°: Plenty Of Fish In The Sea?

Thanks to Star Trek we often think of space as the ‘final frontier’, the great adventure into the unknown.  After all the human race knows a surprising amount about the Earth. We know it has a surface area of 510.1 million km². We know it has a radius of 6,371 kilometres. We know it has…

The VR Job Hub: Big Roles At The Big Hitters

So ends another busy week for VRFocus covering everything at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles. As with every year there was much that was revealed and much that left us with questions. Even beyond videogames though there will still plenty of news, so much we frankly didn’t have enough time to…

Life In 360°: Into The Sunset

It’s Friday and you know what that means? It means we’ve actually nearly survived this year’s edition of E3.  The team out in Los Angeles will be finishing off things today. Grabbing last interviews, taking last meetings, all the good things like that. Today, as we have all this week, we’re continuing (and concluding) our…

Life In 360°: But It Pours

Wednesday. We made it to Wednesday everybody. Well, we’re now well into this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) and if you’re reading this it means that the UK based team of VRFocus is still alive and hasn’t died of sleep deprivation just yet. Which brings us neatly back around to the topic of this week’s…

Competition: Win 3 Copies Of Along Together On Steam

Well, it’s certainly been a busy week so far with this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). The team have been all kinds of busy both in the UK and the US covering everything that’s been going on. However, just because we’ve got E3 on the go it doesn’t mean that we can’t have a competition…

VR vs. A Spare Second

I’m writing this as the countdown to Ubisoft’s conference is ticking merrily away, I’m hoping there’ll be something pretty cool to write about. It’s not like Ubisoft haven’t been interested in virtual reality (VR). They’ve just shown someone at their office playing on an HTC Vive… I think… It’s there and gone in a flash,…

Life In 360°: Sunrise Over Malaekahana

Well, here we are everybody. E3 week has begun very much in earnest. As such I can confirm that if you’re reading this anywhere close to the publication time that at this precise moment the VRFocus team in the UK is probably (hopefully) asleep. Getting some much-needed rest after the usual march past midnight and…

Life In 360°: Being The Fisher King

For a series on VRFocus that so often ends up focusing on flight and nature, we’ve not that often dipped into both at the same time by looking at birds. You would assume that that was rather due to the logistics involved in filming them, and probably why the rare times we have it has…

Life In 360°: The Inner Workings

Wednesday sees us on a collision course with this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles and as a result a chunk of the team is prepping to head out for the usual coverage of everything related to virtual reality (VR) or, if they’re really feeling frisky this year, anything related to augmented reality…

VR vs. AR vs. Creative Play

It was, I have decided, not the best week I’ve ever had. It started off on the Monday where I woke up drenched in sweat and not entirely sure where I was and who I was. Which, I can assure you, is pretty frightening. Going in and out of consciousness to the point you no…

A Sequel With Sharing, ARKit 2 Is Officially Revealed By Apple At WWDC 18

Over in San Jose, California, Apple has once again been showing the world their progress at the 2018 edition of its annual World Wide Developers Conference – aka WWDC. As usual it brought with it the next version of its mobile operating system iOS, this time revealing iOS 12. As well as improvements in areas such as…

Apple Unveils New App Measure At WWDC 18

How long is a piece of string? Okay that’s somewhat obvious. How about… how deep is a suitcase? Well if you want to be precise about it, a new augmented reality (AR) app coming your way from Apple will be able to tell you. Revealed as part of Apple’s presentation into the changes and developments…

Life in 360°: The Streets of the Pearl of the Antilles

A couple of firsts today on Life in 360°. Over the years, and as astonishing as it seems it has actually been years now, we’ve travelled all over the globe and watched 360 degree videos in a number of different ways. Whether it was planes, trains and automobiles of all types, bikes -both the pedal…

Life in 360°: The Claw!

It’s time to go on a rampage! We’re following up Wednesday’s Life in 360° video where we took in some sweet dunks at a basketball competition in Venice Beach, California with something just a little bit spicier. We’re sticking with America, but this time we’re off to Virgin in Utah and some much rockier terrain…

Sprint Vector Rocks Out With New Big Bang Update

Some races never end. They just keep going, and going, and going. And you’ll certainly need to employ the energy levels of a rabbit representing a popular battery company that will remain nameless when playing Survios’ virtual reality (VR) racer Sprint Vector. Hot on the heels of a period of announcements that have included Update…
