I talk with the founder of the FIVARS VR & AR story festival Keram Malicki-Sánchez & WebXR developer James Baicoianu to talk about how the repurposed the open source JanusXR code in order to create a platform to deliver 360 video. It’s a pioneering effort to push the technology forward this way, and they share details about the struggles of their journey and why they see it as import to create a sovereign platform. The festival itself has an independent, avant-garde spirit, and that’s reflected in how they’re also trying to push the technology forward to show folks what’s possible with WebXR.
You can read more thoughts that I have on the FIVARS festival in this Twitter thread:
The @fivarstories 360-degree video fest runs until November 2nd.
It's built using #WebXR & @janusxr, and you can watch videos using Chrome + PCVR.
The curator @kmalickisanchez wrote up an overview & argument for why indie fests like FIVARS are important: https://t.co/E40Kd0IhTy pic.twitter.com/vPWzDMtx0H
