Yahoo's Flickr reveals preview of virtual reality experience

News Agencies | Updated on: 13 February 2017, 4:32 IST

Yahoo-owned Flickr has shown off an early preview of a virtual reality experience that it hopes to integrate with its photo service.

According to Engadget, the demo was with an Oculus DK 2 connected to a PC and the aim is that the users will be able to use the headset specifically with 360-degree panoramic photos.

Bertrand Fan, the front-end architect for Flickr, who is heading up the project, says the plan right now is to add a VR headset link or button at every page with a 360-degree photo, so if the users have a VR headset, they can try the VR experience out.

The Flickr VR demo currently only works with the Oculus but fans hopes to have it integrated with the other VR headsets as well.
