The Swerve app shows just how close the world is to embracing virtual reality on a more domestic level. With the recent announcement of an Oculus Rift Consumer Edition as well as all of the affordable cardboard options out on the market, the Swerve app is a natural evolution of this next generation technology.
Essentially, the Swerve app is a virtual reality social media platform. It allows users to monitor their Twitter feeds in a virtual space. Why? It's not only a dynamic interpretation of such platforms, but also a handsfree alternative to traditional browsing.
The Swerve app was developed by London-based Fourthwall. Although Twitter is the first one to jump on the virtual reality bandwagon, it's clear that Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and more can utilize the technology even more.
