Mindshow, the app from Visionary VR that lets you make animated movies in VR with your body and voice, has revealed they are launching into open beta sometime in Q3 2017.
Revealed in the description of the new promo released today on the company’s YouTube channel, the makers of Mindshow haven’t cranked down on a definite release date yet, but have said it will be launching on HTC Vive. Although not specified on the company’s website, a Techcrunch report maintains Mindshow will also be rolling out on the other major VR platforms including both the PSVR and Oculus Rift, according to a chat with CCO Jonnie Ross and CEO Gil Baron.
First revealed a year ago at VRLA Summer Expo 2016, the application aims to give anyone access to simple tools to tell stories in virtual reality. The company had raised $6 million in venture capital before coming out of stealth last year.
Mindshow allows users to choose a scene, stage the set with props, drop characters into the scene, and even animate them using motion capture through the HTC Vive. Once everything is set, users can record the scene and capture voice-over as they are acting out the scene.
And if the promo tells us anything about the actual app, it’s going to be awesome.
