Let’s assume for a second that you have already bought the HTC Vive or an Oculus Rift and you want to use it at its true value, incorporating this helmet in all aspects of using your computer, including gaming. What do you do?
Well, until a few days ago, the answer was: “… There is nothing you can do about it! ”
The problem with these VR helmets is that whenever you want to access another program, you must take them off, stare at the monitor and run the new application.
Not anymore! Not if you install BigScreen!
This tool virtualizes the desktop, even more, it renders an environment where it projects its content, with practical access to all the icons on your desktop without giving you a headache from all the times you take the helmet off and putting it back on.
Sure, BigScreen will ease the life of many VR users whether they use Vive or Oculus, but looks like it is going to develop a version for Gear VR too. Which unfortunately is scheduled for release somewhere at the end of 2017.
Until then you can access the BigScreen official website to participate in the open beta, which will take place somewhere during the end of April, same as when the tool will be available for download.
Now, one thing passes through my head: “Can BigScreen change the size of my desktop? If so … can someone say: Cinema at my place!!! “
