Sketchfab Expanding Its 3D Viewer to Include VR
Staff Writer By: Ricky Grove (gToon)
Sketchfab has recently reached a "big milestone" with its 3D viewer: you now have the option to see your browser-based 3D scene in Virtual Reality (VR). Currently, Sketchfab works with Google Cardboard, but the company plans to expand to include Oculus Rift as well.
Sketchfab began in 2012 when it released its 3D/web-browser technology which allows artists to view and share 3D content online. Its 3D viewer is based on standard WebGL technology and works very well. In fact, their website is "hosting more than 500k virtual things."
Check out the Sketchfab video below, or try one of their great 3D scenes like Van Gogh's room. It's a great technology that is expanding to include VR.
