Experience virtual reality on macOS with Oculus Rift thanks to VR Desktop


From now on we can experience the virtual reality in macOS using Oculus Rift and VR Desktop. Let's see more details.
The field of virtual reality is experiencing a great boom in recent times in the field of technology, currently reaching consoles and even smartphones. But what we are talking about now is how you can experience virtual reality in macOS through Oculus Rift and thanks to an application called VR Desktop.

Virtual reality comes to macOS through the VR Desktop application and Oculus Rift

As we can see in 9to5mac  a new application of Cindori developer called VR Desktop will allow macOS users to experience virtual reality in their own terminal, as long as the Oculus Rift is available . It would try to create a virtual space thanks to several monitors that the user could control thanks to virtual reality. Although it is true that this application currently only works with Oculus Rift, from the company that has created it have stated that soon will have compatibility with more devices of this type like HTC Vive.
The interesting thing about this issue beyond making the virtual reality available to users without a great effort is that since Facebook, the company that owns the Oculus Rift, had said about it saying that the Mac would not be compatible with this accessory because The GPUs did not meet the specifications they recommended for the Oculus Rift. However, thanks to VR Desktop you can get "a satisfying experience on any modern Mac with a discrete GPU" .
In addition to virtual environments with multiple monitors, you can create custom environments for movies and video games, which will increase the user experience in a field as young as virtual reality. As for the requirements to enjoy this experience are macOS 10.11 or higher, the Oculus Rift development kit 2 and the VR Desktop application , which is priced at $ 19.99 although there is a free trial version on its website . Leave us in comments what you think of this approach to virtual reality in macOS and if you think it will be successful among users.
