VR/AR Browser

VR/AR Browser is an interactive multi-user web experience that transforms websites into navigable 3D environments. Users that load up the same webpage are able to see and voice chat one another. This experiment is heavily inspired by World Wide Maze and the ever popular VR Chat.

In addition to its VR components, AR mode gives the user a top-down admin-like view of all the players on a particular website.

Demo the site at vr-browser.herokuapp.com.

Project started in Erin Sparling's class at Cooper Union.
