  • RoVR: the best of a companion dog without the drawbacks

Many people love dogs but cannot have one at home. Whether it is for lack of space, repeated absences or even a lack of time to take care of a pet, there are many people who cannot adopt such a pet. RoVR could correct this by offering everyone to have a faithful 4-legged companion by their side for the best… but without the worst.



RoVR is a real virtual reality pet dog simulator

RoVR is a virtual reality application project that will allow you to virtually adopt a dog. According to its designers, RoVR allows you to create a real bond of affection with a virtual animal. After the adoption of this one, you will have to make sure to feed it of course but also to educate it. Your pet will indeed be a puppy when it is adopted and it will be necessary to play with it but also to wash and cuddle it. You will have to teach him many things during his education so that he becomes not only a faithful companion always happy to see you but also an intelligent dog capable of understanding many commands.

For more realism, the dog's behavior in RoVR is based on an artificial intelligence that will learn like a puppy would from its master. In addition to the games and the many activities you can do with your virtual companion, RoVR will allow you to dress your dog and offers a wide choice of costumes as funny as they are touching. You can even, once your virtual dog is tamed, present it to agility competition to measure your level of obedience.



RoVR: the best of a companion dog without the drawbacks

Unlike a true four-legged pet, dogs of RoVR do not require daily care nor do they have regular needs. You can enjoy your virtual companion when you feel like it. Your virtual dog may however be a little grumpy if you neglect him for too long but it is obvious that by seeing this animal so touching, you will want to take care of it regularly because it will bring you many satisfactions without having the disadvantages of a real pet.


RoVR is currently in the form of a project and has launched a fundraising campaign through the Kickstarter platform. The application, if it manages to reach the set amount, will be available on HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The beta version should see the light of day at the end of the year and a marketable version for next March.
