In a recent announcement on Steam, NeosVR has announced that their open beta software is now available and free for everyone to use to build their own VR experiences:

Beta marks a big milestone for us. While we spent three years in the alpha stage, working on the fundamentals and building a solid foundation for a new kind of metaverse from the ground up in relative silence, in the beta you, the community, will be crucial to us.

With your help we’ll push this into a well-rounded solution for many different scenarios and build a lot of cool content. Currently Neos is probably mostly interesting to artists, creators, tinkerers and developers, but as we go on and expand on the content and user-friendly functionality, it’ll be more relevant to everyone.

We hope that you’ll join us on this journey and find Neos to be a useful and fun tool, no matter what you do.

It’s a very different approach to VR content creation! I’ll be looking forward to trying NeosVR now that the software is available via the Early Access Program on Steam.
