Toolbox: 360 Desktop transforms your desktop into a virtual control room where you can browse the internet, watch movies or play games on huge, interactive floating screens in a custom VR environment.
What is Toolbox: 360 Desktop?
In the future - according to sci-fi movies, at least - we won’t use computers or keyboards but, instead, interact with huge floating, holographic displays. Want a taste of that future today? Then you might want to consider Toolbox: 360 Desktop. This VR experience lets you drop your old-fashioned desktop with its icons and buttons you need to press, swapping them for a series of larger-than-life interactive displays straight out of science fiction. You can open web browsers, movie players or even games and play them in the virtual room in front of you.
Do I need this app?
There’s good news and bad news here. The bad is that it’s not exactly cheap for what it does. It merely repackages the desktop. And it lacks some of its basics functionality, such as multitasking. Like watching a movie and scrolling through Twitter? Well, that won’t work. The good news is that one day it might, as this continues to receive a lot of developer support and frequent, meaningful updates.
