Thing is, half of the Lindens we knew, went to wookie, like torley, so I would not expect him to have went if they just wanted the back haul.Yeah there's like standalone VR headsets now that don't really qualify as PCs.
I'm actually surprised that the company that bought Sansar is trying to do something with it. I figured they would just use bits of it for other things.
In the age of social distancing, virtual events are quickly becoming A Thing. It's a little delayed, but the new company does have an opportunity to leverage Sansar for stuff like that. It wasn't a mistake on LL's part to sell Sansar when they did but what dreadfully unlucky timing.
Well that's it - it's more like a console. A Playstation 4 has a motherboard and a hard drive and RAM and an OS just like a PC, but you don't call it a PC. The new VR headsets, like game consoles and smartphones and other computerized thingamabobs are different from PCs insofar as you're kinda walled into a very specific user experience and can only do or run certain kinds of things on them.Don't they just have a PC built into them?
Or the equivalent to a console, like Gameboy.
Experience Sansar on mobile!
Take the party with you. Wherever you go.
We're thrilled to launch Sansar's first-ever app for Android & IOS!
Use it this weekend at Lost Horizon: happening right now in Sansar!
How it works
Stream virtual live events in real-time.
Choose between multiple camera angles. Lost Horizon has 15 to offer!
See your favorite performers like never before.
You also don't just use the generic "consoles" when referencing what your software runs on. You specify Gameboy or PS4 or XBox, etc.Well that's it - it's more like a console. A Playstation 4 has a motherboard and a hard drive and RAM and an OS just like a PC, but you don't call it a PC.
Yeah but THAT is because most games are console-exclusive; they're released only FOR one or two particular consoles, so that's why the consoles get named. Sansar can be gotten on ALL VR systems, so they don't have to be more specific.You also don't just use the generic "consoles" when referencing what your software runs on.

So Oculus Quest and Playstation VR are the same?Yeah but THAT is because most games are console-exclusive; they're released only FOR one or two particular consoles, so that's why the consoles get named. Sansar can be gotten on ALL VR systems, so they don't have to be more specific.
>> AVAILABLE ON PC & VRPlaystation VR isn't a system, it's a peripheral for the PS4
But but Oculus Quest is an all-in-one VR system.Will Sansar be compatible with the Oculus Quest?
Sansar currently doesn't support the Oculus Quest. There are currently no plans to support it in the immediate future since the Oculus quest is not powerful enough to run Sansar.
>> AVAILABLE ON PC & VR
There's nothing there about the differences in VR as a system and as a peripheral. Also,
Do I need VR to play Sansar? Which VR headsets are compatible with Sansar? Why does my Windows Mixed Reality headset not work? Does Sansar support any VR body trackers? Can I use a game controller...help.sansar.com
Okay so the app will steam live events; it's not a "log in and walk around in your avatar" app.Sansar is a streaming app that puts you front and center for breathtaking virtual live events.

CHOOSE YOUR VANTAGE. Switch between camera angles and stages so you always have the best view.
EVERY SHOW IS A GLOBAL EVENT. Join concerts with fans from all over the world!
It's definitely a niche if you put some production behind it. I have paid to watch two streamed concerts since Corona. They were well produced and done and worth the money. Though they would not have been if it was jut a band on webcams in front of a laptop.Okay so the app will steam live events; it's not a "log in and walk around in your avatar" app.
But, this description gives us some more information about Wookey's angle here. They're not pushing a "creative virtual world" angle, they're pushing a "platform for virtual events" angle. This is definitely a niche that can use filling in CoronaWorld - you can't put on a concert on Zoom, not one that "feels" like a concert anyway. In Sansar you can have a virtual concert venue with concert-y effects and people can attend performances with their avatars or stream them using the app.
