Mac users that also own a Oculus Rift DK2 or one of the newer HTC Vive or Oculus Rift CV1, may be interested in a new virtual reality desktop application which has been specifically created to run on the Apple Mac operating system.
Created by Cindori the VR Mac application currently only supports the older Oculus Rift DK2 virtual reality headset together with macOS 10.11 or later. But support will be rolling out in the near future for the latest HTC Vive or Oculus Rift CV1 headsets says the development team.
The new VR Mac application allows you to interact with your Mac system in VR enabling you to create up to 2 virtual screens and a giant virtual multi-monitor workspace, that works “seamlessly with macOS and third party applications” says Cindori. The application is now available to download as a trial direct from the Cindori website which explains a little more about the VR Mac application :
