SPACE.io Alternatives

A virtual reality desktop application, SPACE.io allows you to perform all of your familiar computer-based tasks in the exciting and immersive context of virtual reality. Supporting the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift headsets on Windows, the amount of true alternatives to SPACE.io is relatively slim due to how early we are in the life cycle of true virtual reality. That said, there are several alternatives that feature support for Oculus Rift across Windows and macOS.

We will ensure to add more alternatives available for more platforms as they are developed.
