Home Suite for OSVR

The Sensics Home Suite for OSVR is a software suite that makes the OSVR experience intuitive, safe and exciting. It is free for end-users and works on the numerous types of HMDs supported by the OSVR software platform.

The Home Suite includes:

. An in-VR experience that helps the user enjoy existing content and discover new content.

Home includes:

  • Your library, where users can conveniently launch experiences.
  • Recommended content, where users can explore and purchase new content.

Protector™. An always-on utility that helps the user stay within the play area and avoid walls or other obstacles.

An initial set up allows the user to define the safe play area. The system then continuously monitors the user’s head and arm positions (using any available OSVR-supported sensors) and presents a warning grid when the edge of the play area is approached.

Notification center. Displays in-VR notifications that allows the user to see and manage them without having to quit the VR experience

The open architecture of the notification center allows easy integration of notifications such as:

  • Incoming phone calls
  • Text messages
  • Important notifications from social media
  • News feeds
  • and more!

In-app menu. Provides common functions such as volume control for all OSVR apps.

Out-of-VR configuration utility

Advertising interface 

Sensics Home provides an API for ad insertion between VR experiences or even during natural pauses such as loading the next level in a game. This opens up opportunities for ad-supported pricing models for content or hardware.

Ad insertion is done independently of the graphics engine that is used to create the experience. It can be optimized for each geographic region.

Store interface

Sensics Home provides API to integrate stores for both digital goods – applications and content – as well as physical goods
