VR Drop and Share is an application that allows multiple users to talk and collaborate inside a virtual image. The images shared within the application can personally uploaded 360's or you can choose from one of the unique environments they provide in their stock library.
I had a great time talking with the App's founder, Jack Maddalena about how VR Drop and Share provides a way for educators to creatively collaborate with students within virtual spaces. The great thing about VR Drop and Share is that it is available on both iOS and Android devices. It isn't just for high-end Oculus or Vive users, opening up powerful VR collaboration opportunities for almost anyone with a smartphone. One of my favorite features of the app is the ability for users to see where others are looking in real-time. The app uses simple semi-transparent circles that move around the 360 environment until they focus on one area, then they disappear. It gives a real sense of collaborative presence when using the app.
