The VR Dudes took a tour through the salons of Minerva with ‘wick’, the curator for the exhibition, and one of the artists, ‘Alusion’. This episode presents Minerva as a digital visual space in virtual reality, where people are able to interact with the artwork as well as with each other, with or without a head mounted display.
Below, are three shorter videos demonstrating proof of concept and technical tests.

The Immersive Internet
JanusVR re-imagines webpages as collaborative 3D webspaces interconnected by portals.
- JanusWeb Widget Generator
Easily embed VR webspaces in your 2D webpages
With the JanusWeb Widget Generator, you’re a few clicks away from having a fully immersive, 3D world inside of your webpage or blog.
Experience Janus in Your Browser
Easily connect to the metaverse from within a normal 2D browser. Whether on a desktop computer, phone or tablet, JanusWeb runs on most modern web browsers and allows you to explore, chat and play across devices.
- Janus Markup Language
A Simple Way to Build for the Spatial Web
It’s easy to create and share a webspace in JanusVR. It’s as simple as hosting a text file, and a familiar experience for any web developer.

[BUILD] Markup Language: Intro to JML
JanusVR is essentially a web browser. Like most web browsers, content is defined through a “markup language” stored within an html file.
The JanusVR Markup Language (JML) is the basis for most three dimensional webspaces in JanusVR. By simply adding the JanusVR Markup Language to any document and then visiting that document in JanusVR, you can transform it into a rich 3D environment.
