The natural evolution of interaction on the internet: WebVR.

Just last month, the MozVR team released an awesome, new virtual reality library for the web. Written in JavaScript, A-Frame enables developers to craft rich virtual reality experiences on the web using the complex and very powerful web graphics library (WebGL). WebGL is widely supported within all modern browsers, and is not currently being used to its maximum potential due to its complexity.

We believe that WebVR is the natural evolution of interaction on the internet. Although virtual reality is not yet ubiquitous, A-Frame will help proliferate virtual reality adoption; especially when coupled with the availability of Google's inexpensive Cardboard VR kit which lets you use your phone to create a virtual reality experience.

Checkout these really cool examples at A-Frame. They have mentioned that some more examples are on the way, showing how to implement it with ReactJS, a user interaction library by Facebook. Also, checkout their tumblr for some examples of websites made with VR. 

Mozilla hopes, as we do, that A-Frame will help accelerate the development of VR websites. It absolutely will! We're looking forward to being able to use it on new, exciting projects.
