Using the technology of 2006, people could have created the same interfaces of 2017. That’s the short story. The long story is that people have been trained to surf the internet and develop a new taste over the years. Now this leads us to the future.
Virtual Reality in Web Applications
API refers to Application Programming Interface. In simple words, a software developer creates a set of methods and subroutines to simplify other developers to use it and build applications that rely on it.
It Is Even Easier with A-Frame:
A-Frame is a framework that relies on WebVR to facilitate building VR experience in your web application. A-Frame is developed originally by Mozilla to be easy and powerful as they said.
The installation is really easy- the same way you add bootstrap to your web page. Just put the source in <script> tag and you are ready to go.
Internet users used to click on links and see images instead of flying between objects in the VR space. Regardless of the performance, providing a full web VR application is still challenging for developers and users.
In conclusion, do you think future internet users will be more familiar with VR-compatible websites? Whether you agree or not, we would be happy to read your opinions in the comments below.
