USC’s World Building Media Lab and Intel introduce us to The Leviathan Project, an immersive flying-whale fantasy world that allows audiences to play, engage and explore.

New native drivers

We have integrated native drivers for professional 3D tracking devices A.R.T. and NaturalPoint’s Optitrack and soon Vicon. This will help reduce the tracking latency from VRPN.
We have also added support for the Oculus Rift DK2, Leap Motion SDK2, Microsoft Kinect 2.


Unleash the power of multiple graphics cards in one computer. This optimization will allow your application to take full advantage of the power of multiple graphics cards in one computer.
For example Salford University’s immersive system Octave uses MiddleVR for Unity with 4 NVidia Quadro cards in one computer to drive the 8 sides and 14 projectors.
