VR panoramas on Roomstyler

Panoramas are amazing. A still image shows you an interior design at one specific angle. A panorama enables you to look around and experience the whole interior from every angle.

What's even better than a panorama? A VR panorama! A VR panorama shows the interior in 3D, which gives you the immersive feeling of actually standing inside a room. From now one, all the panoramas on Roomstyler will be VR enabled by default.

All you need to do to experience a VR panorama is to load a Roomstyler room on your phone, select a the VR mode and view it in a Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR or other VR glasses. A Oculus Rift or HTC Vive gives you the best VR experience, but you have to jump through a few hoops to get it working.

To make things even better we decided to cut the prices almost in half. An HD VR panorama now costs 3 credits and a 4K VR panorama costs 6 credits.

On a more technical note, we also switched from cubemap to equirectangular images for our panoramas. You can download the original equirectangular images from your room page if you want to use these files in your own viewer. It's also possible to make panorama render requests through the Roomstyler API.
