REACH is a webVR platform created by the Emblematic Group to make volumetric VR production more accessible for storytellers. Made in partnership with Mozilla with webVR, REACH makes volumetric VR creation more accessible and lowers the barrier to distribution. Currently in its beta stage, REACH allows users to operate a simple drag-and-drop web interface to place scans of people and objects into high-resolution 3D environments, which can be selected from a library or uploaded on their own. Users can then upload their 3D video assets, edit their projects, and share their results through a web link without need for any downloads.
Self-described by its founder, Nonny de la Peña, as a mix between “Youtube and Squarespace for VR,” REACH VR is designed to make volumetric VR storytelling available to creators without a coding background. REACH VR can be used by educators to provide virtual field trips, by journalists to tell more immersive stories, and for many other storytelling applications.
