A colorful fluid simulation toy in VR.
Chroma Lab is based around a high performance, custom particle physics engine that utilises the vast computing power of modern GPUs to calculate billions of individual forces per second between the particles, necessary for them to interact with each other and behave like a fluid.
There is a variety of tools to interact with the particles as well as a well featured options menu that allows you to customise the visuals, physics and save/load scenes.
Key featuresBeautiful, psychedelic visuals
Particles react to background music (any external music player is compatible, may not work with Bluetooth headphones)
Tools to pick up, hit, pull, explode, shoot and paint the particles
Placeable force spheres which can also teleport the particles between one another
Save and load the particles and settings, included are a few presets to get started with
Adjustable physics settings to change how the particles behave
Multiple different particle shaders, color pallets and other graphics settings to choose from
Throw blobs into orbit and create black holes
Optional gravity and "lava lamp" modes
Freeze the simulation or slow time to a crawl
Great as first experience for people new to VR - intuitive controls and presets can be chosen outside of VR
MixCast support for easy, high quality mixed reality
Native Oculus SDK support for Rift and Touch users
Number of particles can be automatically determined based on computer speed or manually adjusted
Scale and bounding walls can be adjusted allowing Chroma Lab to be played from sitting to room scaleBeta tester quotes after playing Chroma Lab"okay - gorgeous, just gorgeous! love how well it performs :)"
"I really need to sleep now, even if my dreams will not offer me the delight just spent in Chroma Lab."
"it is absolutely fantastic and probably one of the most beautiful experience I have had in VR so far"
"Wow. WOW I think I'm in love."
"Ok, holy * man. Congratulations, you've made the trippiest game I've ever played"
"Wow. Just... Wow... I might have just found my new favourite thing in VR"
"Well, I went in expecting to just have a quick go before bed. An hour disappeared. That was mesmerizing! Beautifully smooth and so many options!"
* man this is awesome!! I played for like an hour straight!!"
"congrats on creating a very compelling and polished piece of software!"

Chroma Lab reviews and comments

HI, It feels great. A lot of Settings are possible. Slow Motion, for example, makes it possible to track an Impact slowly. With the Color Palettes you can see how the kinetic Energy penetrates through the Body. That's how I mean watching:) It's like slamming into a Sand Castle with a Hammer. Those who like to experiment should access every case. Opinions differ. One is completely thrilled and the Other can't do anything with it.

A very psychodelic Experience, difficult to describe. You can manipulate Particles in a Room with different Tools. But maybe I'm just too stupid to get it right. You feel like God in Times of Big Bang, and bring the Particles flying Wildly through space into a System Of order or create Chaos, build Sunsets, Galaxies or whatever else comes up with, or lie down on the Ground at one of the demo scores and enjoy The psychedelic and colorful View. While I was very Fun, you can't really "do" Much

A wonderful Experience in VR! The Description "physical particle simulator" is accurate, but it does not describe the Fun you can have with this Program, even without having any Idea of Physics or Particles! The Program has many Settings, but also several Examples for the fast Start. Granz great I find the lava lamp examples, especially the one with the big Balls. With one Click in the Menu you switch off the lava lamp effect and you stand in a real Ball Bath and can move the Balls and Confuse them there to your Heart's Content, for example with a Kind Of air Nozzle or Vacuum cleaner. If you add to your Favorite Music (the Program can even react to it), then you can lose yourself very well in this VR experience and switch off from the RL!

Lovers of psychedelic-a good thing for a hundred rubles, under the acid not to play, can happen terrible with the psyche) is Able to visualize music, in fact, manage a certain mass of small particles. There are several tools-to draw to itself, throw these balls, paint, but the most interesting-these are black holes, which we add to the world, and they create gravity, that's where this thing starts not to childish sausage and you can get different interesting effect. There are presets in the settings, eight pieces, of which you can see what to do here. Also in the settings you can set five types of these points and five different color schemes, which gives in fact 25 visualization options. You can Still customize the colors and so on. In General, has handed on the Jutyube some trance collection and pouring for an hour, cool shit) I will Not say that I'll often play it, but for the collection for this money-quite myself.
