How good it would be, if all your PDF files transform into brutally real, interactive and exciting VR experiences. Well, to your wishes, this may soon be true!
Aiming to transform PDFs into some highly interactive experiences, software giant Adobe recently showcased the prototype of a PDF to VR converter, which will empower the users to simply step into a PDF document using a consumer virtual reality (VR) device and 360-degree content. “Adobe’s latest prototype scratches the surface of new ways one can experience content and the underlying possibilities but the company does not guarantee to develop a product roadmap around the same. The PDF to VR prototype attests Adobe’s innovative thinking and commitment towards constantly enhancing the content experience,” the company said in a statement.
The innovation allows users to interact with an otherwise passive PDF document and unlock layers of information in it. The subject matter of a regular PDF, essentially picture led content, is turned into VR content through 360-degree views. While reading it through a consumer VR device, readers would be virtually transported inside the document, exploring visuals. The VR content includes annotations, which when tapped on, reveal related notes and information.
