VR Web Browser 'Supermedium' No Longer in Active Development – Road to VR 1

Supermedium, the team behind the native virtual reality browser that lets you interact with web-based VR content, says its namesake project is no longer in active development, and that it’s effectively been put “on ice” in search of something that consumers might use in VR on a daily basis.

According to an interview with German VR publication MIXED (German), the company says it’s “not actively working on Supermedium itself right now and exploring other projects.”

“We’ll try to continue to take our approach and design in directions into projects that we think people will want to use more,” a company spokesperson told MIXED. 

When asked whether the free VR web browser would receive any more updates, Supermedium’s creators say it probably won’t “in the incarnation of WebVR browser.”

“It’s on ice as it sorta works and is still up, but I think we’ll be trying to solve how to make something that people would want to use VR everyday for and solve a problem,” the spokesperson concluded.

The company, also known as Super XYZ, is the very same behind VR web framework ‘A-Frame’ and was also a part of the original Mozilla team behind the WebVR initiative.

In July 2018, the company raised a seed investment round of $1.1 million, with funding coming from Y Combinator, General Catalyst, Boost VC, Anorak Ventures, Candela Partners, Social Starts, M Ventures, Seraph Group, Taimatsu, Outpost VC, Colopl Next, Shrug VC, Andrew Ogawa, and Cantos VC.

Supermedium is available on a range of PC VR headsets, including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index, and Windows VR headsets. You’ll find it on Steam and the Oculus Store.
