VRapture syncs your VR settings from the cloud


VRapture is a new cloud based service for synchronizing your VR settings between computers and games.

Calibrating the Oculus rift for your personal IPD (intraocular pupil distance) is critical for immersion. It also helps prevent eye strain (aesthenopia) which can cause headaches, pain around the eyes, blurred vision, and occasionally double vision. And may potentially lead to VR Sickness. VRapture makes this easy as pie.

The service works by saving your specific calibration settings in your cloud profile. This allows you to recall these settings in any game on any computer by scanning a QR code with an app running on your smartphone.
