VR Desktop a future without Monitors

A $15 Virtual Desktop app for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive that brings the full Windows 10 experience to VR, it can replace your monitors in future. Imagine having your entire Windows desktop projected on a movie theater screen while sitting in the best seat in the house.

Virtual Desktop app Setup is easy and once you’re in virtual view, you can resize the size and distance of the desktop, from the equivalent of sitting six feet away from a 60-inch display, to having it tower before you as if it were on an enormous IMAX screen.

SteamVR’s “desktop theater mode” on the HTC Vive also lets you use Windows in VR, but it’s mainly meant for playing non-VR games and movies in your headset.

VR Desktop is particularly impressive when it comes to watching videos since you can freely make the screen larger for a more cinematic experience. Videos look sharp and clear in full-screen mode, though.
