Detailed Description

Janus VR - The World Within the Web

Janus VR is an immersive and collaborative internet browser. Named after the Roman God of passages, Janus VR re-imagines webpages as multi-dimensional spaces, linked by portals. Users experience 3D models, animations, spatial audio-video, and amazing data visualizations built as webpages, in an intuitive VR context. Any current webpage, hosted anywhere, can be viewed in Janus VR. Users enter Janus VR in a private homepage called the "pocketspace", that is their dashboard to the immersive web, with portals to popular or bookmarked webspaces, and other people online. Opening these portals allows users to embark on an endless journey, literally walking or flying through the internet, with others or on their own. In social mode, user avatars at the same webspace, can see, talk, chat and interact with each other. Users in party mode can even broadcast their movement in cyberspace. Our growing user-developer community has built thousands of diverse webspaces for users to explore with content ranging from art to architecture, education, games, and live entertainment. These experiences can be built and edited in Janus VR itself, using both spatially tracked game controllers and keyboard-and-mouse. Janus VR is a powerful combination of web content, VR and the collective imagination of our users.

Reviews

“When I first tried [Janus], my first instinct was to tell the world about it and my second instinct was to build a room for it. I am extremely pleased to announce that Virtual Reality Reviewer now has a room in Janus VR.”
Virtual Reality Reviewer

“This is probably our favorite VR browser around, as it manages to really immerse you into the web experience. JanusVR turns links into pathways and websites look like rooms. And you don’t have to browse alone – there will be other avatars in these rooms. It’s also possible to make the experience more involved with HTML.”
