VR Paintings

Have you ever been in an art gallery and become so fascinated by a colorful painting that you wondered what it would be like to actually enter into that painting?
In VR Paintings™, you enter colorful oil paintings and experience them as fully immersive 360° virtual reality experiences. Living within these colorful oil paintings unbounded by edges, you can turn left and right; zoom in and out; return to the gallery; and then view the painting again as a flat image; read information about the painting and the exhibition; and explore other rooms and exhibitions in the gallery.
Features:
• Explore The Floating Gallery™
• Enter Hybrid VR Paintings™
• Enjoy paintings and galleries as fully interactive 360° environments
• View paintings as flat images
• Retrieve information about paintings and exhibits
• Connect with online resources such as downloadable PDFs
Developer, Dave Alber says, “VR Paintings connects the long continuity of the oil painting tradition with the immediacy of 21st century technology. Not everyone sees the value of art, but friends of the art tradition will certainly want to explore this marriage of art and VR technology.”
The only gallery where you can do this is The Floating Gallery™, a gallery without floor or ceiling. This gallery itself is in fact an oil painting. It is a fully immersive 360° oil painted gallery, within which you can explore room after room of fine art collections.
All of the framed art on the walls of these rooms may be entered as Hybrid VR Paintings™. Each painting in The Floating Gallery is a physical painting that actually exists in the real world, and which, within the virtual world of the VR Paintings app, becomes a fully immersive VR reality.
Interactive buttons allow you to move from gallery to gallery; to enter the paintings as 360° environments; to view the flat art; and to get more information about the art.
The VR Paintings app is best experienced with Google Cardboard or other VR headsets. However, the app also works with an unassisted iPhone or iPad. (In other words, you may use it without VR goggles.)
