Our company would love to use this system with the Oculus rift but we will have URL's attached to objects. Currently when clicked they open in a separate window (on the monitor not the Oculus headset). Can we get the webpage to open in a window comfortably visible within the headset?

This would be fantastic.

Best regards,

SĂ©adna Smallwood.

Unfortunately that's impossible, cause standard browsers don't support Oculus

Its not impossible, I have used a number of Oculus applications that can view websites. Janus VR for example. Also VR Desktop which can even show your entire desktop and therefore any browser window.

I meant that's impossible with the current setup. It would require some effort to support that, and currently VR is not our main priority.

Thanks for the response Alexey, hopefully this gets implemented at some point in the future. We would love to use it.
