Samsung is already flying high on its range of flagships the company released this year. However, moving away from the smartphone aspect of things, the company has also ventured into the exciting world of virtual reality, thanks to its Gear VR offering.
While the VR dream stands tall for the company, one cannot forget the new VR experience from DreamWorks that was unveiled alongside the Gear VR earlier this year. However, things weren't this serious at the time the way it is with at the ongoing Samsung Developers Conference.
While the DreaWorks VR experience simply acted as a virtual cinema to showcase a 3D trailer for the upcoming Penguins of Madagascar at that time, in the modern day context, the company has shown bigger ambitions for the software, now titled DreamWorks VR.
Taking the stage at the ‘Virtually Flying With Dragons' technical keynote at the 2014 Samsung Developer Conference, DreamWorks Animations' Warren Mayoss confirmed that the company intends to launch DreamWorks VR in this final quarter of 2014.
For the record, Gear VR itself is launching in the US in early December 2014. This means fans can now expect the app to arrive close to the launch of the device (if not at the launch). In a nutshell, DreamWorks VR from DreamWorks Animation allows Samsung Gear VR users to interact with DreamWorks characters and content in a whole new way like never before.
Apart from that, Mayoss has also insisted that, over time, DreamWorks VR will have more experiences added to it, meaning it will be much more than just simple trailer-viewer that it has appeared as so far. Indeed, it was also brought into light after company's Brad Herman revealed that it has more Dreamworks VR content to share, but currently waiting for the right kind of audience.
In fact, Herman also stated "that the company had already produced a series of animated shorts for VR, but wouldn't be releasing them until there was a market for them." Apparently, the shorts were written just as the company writes its traditional 2D movies.
Details on additional experiences were not announced at this point in time. However more is to be revealed on DreamWorks' progress in VR. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates.
