New Social VR Space: NeosVR

The Road to VR website just published an article about the upcoming beta of a new social VR space I had not heard of before, called NeosVR, titled ‘NeosVR’ to Head Into Beta Soon – A “Metaverse Engine” to Create Multi-user VR Worlds.

NeosVR bills itself on its website as a “Virtual and Mixed Reality Multiverse Engine”. According to the Road to VR article:

In its latest update, named the ‘User Friendly Update’, the alpha version saw a new mechanic that allows you to interlink individual worlds, represented as tiny orbs. The “world orb” also has a 360 thumbnail and number beside it to indicate how many users are within it. This essentially allows you to build several interlinked, multiuser spaces filled with objects of all types, so you could make your own art gallery, photogrammetry-based tour through a physical place; almost anything you can imagine using NeosVR’s toolset.

There’s not a lot of pictures or video of NeosVR content yet, aside from a 10-second video clip of an experience within NeosVR:

There’s also an 8-minute time-lapse video showing the building of several experiences:

They do have a mailing list that you can sign up for on their website, to become a beta tester for the software. NeosVR is currently in alpha, and they warn that “forward content compatibility isn’t guaranteed in an Alpha build and there are various features missing.” (That’s a quote from the confirmation email I got back when I registered.)

As I have said before, the social VR marketplace is getting crowded!
