Step right into your favourite PC games in virtual reality and start shooting away at zombies and monsters. Experience every moment like you're actually in the game, and immerse yourself in a whole new VR world - without the need for fancy VR equipment.
CLOVR is a hassle-free mobile app that transforms any PC game into virtual reality. Without the need for complicated hardware, CLOVR makes VR gaming available, accessible and affordable to everyone.
The CLOVR app was made with you in mind. Whether you're a casual or avid gamer, CLOVR's fuss-free approach makes it easy for you to get started on VR gaming.
We also created CLOVR for game developers. You are the ones who spend days, months and years coming up with fun, exciting "moments" for the rest of us.
The CLOVR team is pushing the boundaries of VR gaming by taking existing PC games and transforming them into VR-ready format. For game developers, this means CLOVR will help you bypass the complicating process of turning each gaming "moment" into VR.
As Seen On
How Do We Do It?
CLOVR takes the gaming content you see on your PC screen, translates it to VR-ready format and streams it into your phone. Whatever game your PC is capable of running, CLOVR is able to turn into virtual reality.
FOR THE GEEKS: CLOVR uses GPU image retargeting and advanced encoding to transform PC games (without VR support) into VR-ready format. It also uses multithreading to improve the performance of the data transformations. Through the app, existing PC gaming content is converted into stereoscopic view (VR mode) and transmitted to your phone via WiFi.
What Sets CLOVR Apart?
1. CLOVR supports all PC games.
As long as you can run the game on your PC, you can enjoy it in VR. What we’ve discovered is that the best games to enjoy in VR are first person shooter games and role playing games. Playing games from a first person point-of-view gives the most immersive and lifelike experience.

2. CLOVR supports wireless gaming.
VR gaming is all about experiencing the game in a lifelike manner, and a bunch of cables would only get in the way. Using WiFi, CLOVR trasmits VR-ready content to your phone, allowing you to freely roam while gaming in VR.
Thanks to CLOVR's amazing tech team, you can experience wireless VR gaming at 60 fps (frames per second)—which rivals the performance of a tethered connection.
3. CLOVR introduces head tracking technology.
One of the features we’ve designed in CLOVR is to utilize your phone’s inbuilt gyroscope to perform seamless headtracking. This means that your gaming experience is not passive. Instead, you are able to fully embrace each game scene like you’re there in real person.
Currently, CLOVR supports 3DOF (3 Degrees of Freedom), which means a user can perform 3 types of rotations: pitch, yaw & roll.
4. CLOVR makes VR gaming affordable.
With CLOVR, all you need to start VR gaming is an affordable VR headset plus what you already have (a PC, a phone and your favourite games). This means anyone can now enjoy the VR gaming experience at a fraction of the cost.
5. CLOVR is easy to setup.
The main focus of CLOVR is for you to enjoy gaming. Period. That's why we wanted to make it super simple to use CLOVR. In fact, it only takes 3 easy steps to start gaming in virtual reality.
As easy as 1... 2... 3!
1. Launch CLOVR on phone & PC.
2. Select game on phone app to launch game in VR format.
3. Place phone into VR headset and start gaming.

How the Dream Started.
CLOVR began as a passion project. We loved VR gaming and were exploring ways to make it accessible. However, VR gaming was a relatively new concept, and the sheer cost needed to purchase hardware & software made the barrier of entry too high.
That’s when the idea was birthed. Why not take what people already have—a PC, a phone and their favourite PC games, and create a solution to enable VR gaming? We set out with a vision to make VR gaming accessible to everyone through CLOVR, a simple app that would make it possible.
Making The Dream Come To Life.
For the past year, we've been pouring in our own resources and countless hours to make CLOVR a success. Now that we're just one step away from making CLOVR a reality, we wanted you to be part of our vision in bringing VR gaming to the masses.
The reason we are on Kickstarter is to raise SGD 5,000 to help us put the finishing touches on the app development, user interface and design. Additional funds received will go towards app optimization and the introduction of new features.
Help us make VR gaming available, accessible and affordable to everyone. Share our Kickstarter campaign, back us and together let's bring CLOVR to life!

Risks and challenges
1. Technical challenges.
Since CLOVR is a mobile app, we do foresee potential bugs and compatibility issues in the early phases. We will be actively taking feedback from backers who gain FIRST access & early access to improve the CLOVR app.
2. CLOVR (iOS version).
Currently, CLOVR is available on Android and it is our priority to bring it to Apple devices as well. This would be a challenge that we are optimistic and excited to overcome.
3. Game compatibility.
Lastly, our dream is for everyone to enjoy their favourite games on VR with CLOVR. As mentioned, users may run into hiccups when it comes to running certain games. This is why in addition to continually testing new games on CLOVR, our team is commited to troubleshoot and help you optimize favourite games if you face any problems.
