DroneVR is the first web-based virtual reality flight simulator, so it’s not something that has been done in the past, which is why this is such a huge technical breakthrough.- Very Big Things Team
Being able to build this experience on the web browser was our key a-ha moment when planning the execution for DroneVR. Our client, Certify-Ed, wanted to make sure that this was built in a VR environment in order to make it as real as possible, and to make the VR experience accessible without having to use the VR headset. That’s when it hit us that we should build it on the browser. Our team was able to re-define what the web browser can do, and we were able to build not only the VR environment, but a physics engine that runs entirely on the browser. DroneVR is definitely a first of it’s kind, we made huge engineering breakthroughs.
