With different virtual reality (VR) devices in the market, the VR experience is getting more and more popular by consumers. WebVR brings the VR concept to the web by providing interfaces to VR hardware. This makes it much easier to build a VR experience with content delivered through a web browser. This topic will introduce the WebVR specification, and will show some interesting demos of how it can be used.
