Boosting productivity is certainly possible with VR, even though there are a few tools which effectively provide users with that particular option. SpaceSys is an option well worth exploring, as it allows everyone to run their desktop or laptop in fully immersive environment. More competition in this segment is more than welcome at this point.
SpaceSys can Help Boost Productivity
As soon as VR became consumer-ready material, people have been thinking out loud about how it will boost productivity. Sitting at a virtual desk in virtual environments, with multiple screens or one big screen, the opportunities are virtually limitless. So far, however, most VR enthusiasts have been rather disappointed in this regard. Other than Bigscreen beta, there aren’t many apps which effectively provide a productivity-based immersive environment as of right now.
With SpaceSys, it seems we have a new contender worth keeping an eye on. This application has been around for nearly three years now, albeit it is a more versatile product in its current form. The latest version supports the HTC Vive only, as well as Windows 7 SP1. Further support for Windows 10 will come in the next 9-12 months, although no hard deadline has been set in this regard.
SpaceSys Inc EO Armando Matijevic comments:
“VR gives us an opportunity to literally break walls and work in new ways over the 2D display world we’ve been confined to for more than 40 years. Taking full advantage of that paradigm shift means we can’t accept the norms and practices we’ve developed working in 2D, though. We believe we have the right solution and working hard to make it happen.”
It is evident there is still a lot of work to be done. For the price of $9.99, users get limited functionality right now, as very few people use Windows 7 SP1. At the same time, the app shows how the future of VR productivity may look. Assuming the team can add Windows 10 support, this application will certainly be worth keeping a close eye on. We certainly hope this project will be successful and provides us with the immersive environment we have been looking for.
