So I finally got Ikonospace up and running, and even in beta it provides a beautiful, feature filled VR gallery creator. Learn more about it in the trailer.

For an example of the gorgeous spaces that can be created with "Ikonospace Pro", below is a video for an exhibition created of the photographer Norman Seeff's work.

There are other gallery building apps online; but they are not quite as rich, beautiful and usable.

It will also have other uses in the future, as is explained on the Ikonospace website; Check out this video exploring an Ikonospace created environment.

I thought of my first two gallery attempts as fun experiments, starting out with one of the pre-designed galleries "Geneva"

As you can see, the work looks a bit dark, but it still looks very beautiful and real. I hear there may be fixes to the lighting in the next update; so I will return to my "Dark Worlds" gallery then.

There are three views you can use; floor plan; perspective view and ground view. Here is "perspective" view.

And here is "ground" view. You can see how it is darker. Hopefully I can figure out how to get the lights to work soon.

In the meantime I decided to build my own space with natural light. I named it "Ethereal Studio"

The Beta has multiple options for colors and textures; more than other gallery applications I have used and they look much more real. I started by designing a small studio space.

It looked a bit empty so I added a bench. It is a bit crooked now; I will have to fix it. I hope they develope a "snap to" function.

I then tacked on another gallery so I could show more work. I had a bit of trouble drawing the walls and figuring out how to quickly find the selection tool to erase mistakes; but the tools are easy to learn and easy to use.

All in all very impressed and excited about this project; there are a few more issues that need resolving either with updates or with future tutorials. Below is the first tutorial.

I wish I could share my entire VR gallery with you; but until then you can view my post about another gallery creation program, "Artsteps" , and view the first gallery I created for it here
