Our Next Step in VR Gaming: Sketchfab Announces Virtual Boy Support

Back to overview

You need to know your history before you can move forward into the future. With that in mind, we’ve worked hard to support one of the first commercially available VR devices on the market: the Nintendo Virtual Boy.

As with most features we launch, it’s still in beta. To activate, navigate to any Sketchfab model and hit the following sequence on your keyboard:

Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Enter

Here’s a preview, recreated according to the Virtual Boy’s impressive specs:

If you don’t have a Virtual Boy yet, don’t worry! We have managed to purchase one hundred units and are giving them away for FREE! Just email us and include a motivation why you’d love to watch your Sketchfab models on your Virtual Boy.

UPDATE: before you email us, please double-check the date of this article 😉
