Mac users that also own a Oculus Rift DK2 or one of the newer HTC Vive or Oculus Rift CV1, may be interested in a new virtual reality desktop application which has been specifically created to run on the Apple Mac operating system.
Created by Cindori the VR Mac application currently only supports the older Oculus Rift DK2 virtual reality headset together with macOS 10.11 or later. But support will be rolling out in the near future for the latest HTC Vive or Oculus Rift CV1 headsets says the development team.
Costing $19.99, the brand new app enables Mac proprietors to strap at the Oculus Rift and view their MacOS computer across up to 3 digital shows. The capture is that the app will work on “contemporary” Macs that encompass discrete pix chips. That is pretty an tremendous feat given the Oculus Rift isn’t formally supported on Mac machines.
Cindori’s VR computer doesn’t supply a complete VR enjoy such as you’d see on home windows computers. It’s miles, as a substitute, custom designed for one use case. It lets macOS users have a multi-monitor setup without the monitors. Virtual monitors are created in virtual truth in which customers can adjust the gap of the displays as they please. They can then use their Macs generally, even though they can truly use VR Desktop for enjoyment purposes, like looking movies in a ghost town of a cinema.
The actual hardware requirements to run the app are unknown. However, here are the minimum and recommended specs needed to use the Oculus Rift:
