1.First VR Everest experience
Yes, you heard it right. The first fully featured, 1.5 to 2 hour experience is coming to HTC Vive and will let the user to feel like one of the the Sagarmāthā (a.k.a Everest) climbers. In spite all interactive possibilities Everest VR gives to the consumer, it is positioned more on a VR experience than VR games category. One of this experience reviewers says that ‘each scene starts in what feels like a small theatre. And then the nice, safe theatre gently fades away and you find yourself flying over the scene.’ Sounds intriguing, isn’t it?

As Awesome Rocketship claims in their website, they ‘distributes virtual reality content enhanced with motion-controlled seating, atmospherics, and 3D audio, that can be delivered and installed in venues worldwide’. We have to admit that sounds promising.
4. Google ‘Tilt Brush’
Few months ago Google came up with this VR tool called ‘Tilt Brush’. It allows you to paint on a VR canvas.
