The WaveVR officially launches on Steam...and lives up to the months of anticipation to be perhaps a Killer VR app.
If you have been reading CatsAndVR you know that I am a fan of The WaveVR. The team behind it are talented and looking to make one of the KILLER apps of the future of VR. The WaveVR has been endorsed by several members of the VR community from Kent Bye to Reggie Watts and anytime someone has tried it they have been blown away. The first experience of The WaveVR for me came in 2016 at SVVR when Grimecraft demoed to me as a DJ simulation with great visuals. Well several conferences and lots of development later The WaveVR has now come to Steam as a robust full featured social experience. I joined the fun yesterday to several happy avatars awaiting Grimecraft playing a set.
TheWaveVR is a VR platform for people who love music, enabling them to view, host and socialize in live and recorded shows worldwide, anytime, anywhere. TheWave creates a VR venue where artists can perform live music by simply importing their tracks, customizing the visuals of the venue, and sharing virtual shows.
The UI and UX are on point, the interactivity is there, people were communicating, and there was enough of a Burning Man element to make me smile a bit.
But in the immortal words of Lavar Burton in Reading Rainbow "Dont' take my word for it" go try it out for yourself http://store.steampowered.com/app/453000/
Oh and also here what these people much cooler than me have to say about it to.
“TheWaveVR is building music experiences that can only exist in virtual reality. They're giving musicians superpowers they've never had before, and allowing listeners to experience performances in ways that have never been possible. We're excited to help them build this platform that will forever change the music industry,” said Anjney Midha, founding partner at KPCB Edge.
"As all of my VR experiences so far, exhilarating, great, thought and idea provoking and left me wanting for more!"
"TheWave is the first VR experience that captures the excitement of a live performance in a totally original way. While many people are chasing an emulation of a nightclub, The Wave is pioneering an entirely new compelling platform that is playful, social, and fun to use.”
