When I started this project a couple of years ago honestly I did it for personal purposes, since my work as a 3D Designer merited an easy way to access the increasing amount of resources that the Virtual Reality area currently has, and as a content developer it is important to be updated about the latest information.

This is how "VIRTUAL REALITY RESOURCES DATABASE" was born, which is a dynamic database of links as a collaborative open platform, in which anyone can add more information to complement it and help make it grow collectively, in this way we can have access to valuable data from easy way as well as receive the latest updates of the area subscribing for free.


According to the page statistics, for most visitors has found an ideal way to stay updated; some contribute with links hard to find, and others simply have the free information available to consult it and take advantage of it commercially. The result has been a success, and I am really pleased with the positive comments in support of this initiative, as I am proud to have been reviewed in different media as an ideal option for access and research information on the subject without commercial bias.

Not having any kind of sponsors, since I don't have any direct affiliation to the products and services that the database directly promotes, I found "" which is a website where you can buy a "cup of coffee" "to invite your favorite content creators and thus show your support being a nice way to raise funds to make it sustainable, and allow me to compensate the time invested that it requires and thus continue with its development and expansion.

Ko-fi page:

I really hope that this website is as useful to you as it has been to me, and you can join us to help develop this important collective information project.

Thank you very much for your support!
