Primrose VR democratizes access to what experts and enthusiasts alike are calling "The Last Medium", aka Virtual Reality. Smartphones changed the world by providing people with constant access to applications that fit their on-the-go lifestyle, untethered from their desks. Virtual Reality will change the world by providing people with constant access to natural-feeling, face-to-face collaboration with anyone in the world.

The Primrose Framework helps web developers create virtual reality experiences within standard web browsers on desktop and mobile devices alike. Through its common interaction space, design tools, interface objects, and user experience best-practices, users and developers collaborate to create interactive multimedia and productivity applications.

Primrose is free, open source software (GPLv3) and may readily be with other FOSS projects.

Examples

What is WebVR?

WebVR enables web browsers to display content on virtual reality devices like the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, or smartphones with Google Cardboard. With WebVR, developers can create immersive virtual reality experiences that run in any WebGL-enabled browser.
