VR Launcher

The VR Launcher allows you to browse and explore the Sketchfab 3D model library without leaving Virtual Reality. For setting up your VR scene, see VR Editor. For navigating in VR, see VR Navigation. For getting to VR mode on your device, see Mobile VR and Desktop WebVR.

Press the View in VR button on any browse page (e.g. staffpicks, popular, a collection, a tag, a user gallery) to open the VR Launcher. Here, you can select models to view and scroll through more content.

We prepared two example collections: one optimized for mobile, and one better for desktop.

Simply look at the model thumbnail and select it to load the scene:

  • Google Cardboard (or similar): Press the Cardboard button or tap the screen
  • HTC Vive: Press the controller trigger
  • Oculus Rift: Press the main Select button

    Your VR feature used to work fine although I would prefer more depth which you could achieve by putting the cameras further from each other.

    But currently when I switch to VR all I can see is a pair of white grids with a white dot on a gray background and dark gray sky. I haven't changed my phone meanwhile, I have a Lenowo Wibe.

    VR doesn't appear to be working for me with latest Firefox 55 and Oculus CV1 with latest drivers. When I click the VR icon, it either says "get a VR compatible browser" or once or twice opened up some sort of a VR view in browser and Oculus for a few seconds and then crashed the NVidia display driver, Firefox and Oculus. Seems to be buggy as fuck right now. Also why is it opening BOTH Oculus Home AND Steam VR?? Why does it need to open Steam VR??

    Why does it seems like the VR functionallity doesn't work anymore for HTC Vive in the latest Firefox web browser. It was working wonderfully before the the webbrowser was upgrraded. All your instructions are pointing and referring to older web browsers. What can i do to be able to se the Sketchfab objects again?
