WebVR Support Added to @Sketchfab 3D Models

Sketchfab announced they’ve added VR support to all 3D models hosted on their platform. Just click ‘View in VR’ – this is especially useful for any type of ‘immersive’ 3D model, such as Van Gogh’s room, the famous Bedroom in Arles that the Dutch painter rendered three times over one year from October 1888 to September 1889 – updated 127 years later with VR and 3D models!

Sketchfab VR does not offer a wild gaming experience where you have to shoot monsters and think about how to survive. It’s much more of a contemplative experience: you are here to explore the world around you. It’s about places, things, objects, people. It’s about discovery. It’s about learning. Ever dreamed of teleporting yourself to Rome, inspecting a beating heart, or walking along dinosaurs? You can do all these things in Sketchfab VR.
