'ViewR' Lets You Watch a VR Session in Action From the Comfort of Your Phone


ViewR lets you observe a PC VR session in action from an Android mobile device.

Brisbane, Australia-based group #include today released a new app called ViewR that lets you observe a PC VR session in action from an Android mobile device.

ViewR essentially inserts another camera into the VR game, letting a spectator hold up their Android phone or tablet to watch what's going on, replete with positional tracking for the non-VR observer. Up to four devices can connect into the space at once.
ViewR is available as a Unity SDK that developers can include in the VR games for free, but individual gamers can also run the ViewR PC installer to add the functionality to an existing game too.
To date, the studio has modded ViewR into Superhot VR, Beat Saber, and Budget Cuts to demonstrate just how powerful the concept is.
