CEEK Virtual Reality Cozy Home Cinema

We are excited to share major updates to the CEEK VR App for all stores — iOS App Store, Android Play Store, Oculus Go, Oculus Rift, HTC, Gear VR, iPad and Smart TVs. The new CEEK VR App takes up less memory space and has a reduced Asset Bundle size of 19 MB (Android) compared to 79MB; a whooping 76% reduction in size. All environments within the App were improved, as well we have added a few cool new venues for Ceekers to escape while they enjoy their favorite concerts, music docs and more.

CEEK Virtual Reality Space Room Cinema

Our new CEEK VR environments include a Home Cinema room with ability to set daytime and nighttime views. It’s a small cozy intimate setting for those wanting to relax in style.

We also created an intergalactic chill space for all Ceekers who need their “Space” :D You can now enjoy a magnified viewing experience while collision- free meteors whiz.
