Sightline: The Chair gets updated for CV1 and Vive.

Posted April 20, 2016 by Conor Burke in News

They say you never forget your first experience and for me with VR anyway, it was Sightline: The Chair one of the earlier tech demo’s available for the DK2, which has now been updated for the Oculus and HTC Vive consumer models.

For anyone who hasn’t tried this experience, which is not definably not any of my family or friends as this is the demo I use to introduce them to VR. I would highly recommend having this experience in your library and for anyone who ever doubts the potential of VR this will win them over.


As amazing an experience Sightline: The Chair is in VR, where you watch the world around you swap and change at every turn of your head and get taken gradually from one scene to the next. It’s almost as enjoyable watching a noob putting out that headset and the smile on their face as they are transported into a new reality for the first time. Watching anyone twist and turn around waiting for the next moment that something appears while they are really facing towards the back of their own chair has brought me no end of entertainment.

Developed by Tomáš “Frooxius” Mariančík and his team, Sightline is something you can only experience to understand.
