The VRScout Report – The Week in VR Review


THE FAMOUS ICELANDIC ECCENTRIC EMBRACES VR. To announce this European premiere, Björk held a press conference and beamed herself in (from Iceland) via a psychedelic motion-captured avatar churning with colors (because why not?).

Is Everest VR the Most Immersive VR Experience?


Together with The Climb for Oculus Rift, it probably represents the path forward for VRX. The experience was created by taking over 300,000 images and creating a 3D mesh with textures, all powered by Epic’s Unreal Engine 4. Solfar worked hand in hand with RVX , Iceland-based Special Effects (VFX) studio which worked on the Everest movie. If you’re wondering about Oculus Rift or Sony PlayStation VR, have no fear – Solfar won’t disappoint you.
