Developer ‘Survios’ Details Process of Porting VR Title to iMac Pro, Says Apple Has ‘A Lot of Passion’ for VR

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

When Apple launched the iMac Pro last December, virtual reality applications and content creation were headlining features for the high-end computer. Prior to that, the company focused on Metal 2 and VR-based content as major additions to macOS High Sierra during WWDC 2017, also announcing multiple game studios putting their support behind Mac-based VR experiences, like Valve and Epic using the HTC Vive headset.

Today, another VR studio backing Apple’s efforts in this space has become the focus of a new report by Ars Technica. The studio, called “Survios,” was approached by Apple to port its new software “Electronauts” to macOS, part of many VR apps aimed at showcasing the iMac Pro’s top-of-the-line capabilities.


In the new interview, Survios studio head Mike McTyre and software engineer Jason Meisel discussed the “nearly painless” porting process, what working with Apple was like, and the important distinction between Apple’s focus on AR vs VR.

According to Meisel, Apple focused on ease of portability and ensured that early VR Mac developers wouldn’t hit roadblocks during the porting process. Right now on Mac, VR experiences are supported using an optimized version of Valve’s SteamVR platform and Survios developed Electronauts in the Unity game engine, which “can build directly to a multitude of platforms” spanning macOS and Windows.

“Essentially, what they’ve done really well is that they’ve been working with Unity and with Valve to make that whole process of porting a game that already exists using Unity and just get it running on the iMac,” Meisel added.

Speaking on the topic of the small install base of an iMac Pro-only VR title, McTyre said that the studio noticed “a lot of passion” from Apple, and it’s clear that the Cupertino company is planning “a lot more growth” in VR moving forward.

We’re seeing a lot of resources on their end, a lot of effort, a lot of passion. They want to focus on this and work on this. So that might be true now, but that’s just the starting point. It starts here, and let’s see what they add on to that next… I truly believe that they’re going to put a lot more growth into that going forward beyond this. This is just a starting point.

To expand the support of VR on Mac computers, McTyre said that in a few years he hopes to see Macs launch with integrated GPUs that sport minimum spec requirements for VR. Right now, even the iMac Pro development kit includes an external GPU enclosure, and support for eGPUs will launch wide in macOS High Sierra 10.13.4. McTyre hopes this is just a stopgap solution for graphics-heavy apps like VR: “I do think we are not that far off from the built-in GPUs just being good enough to just, out of the box, play VR.”

McTyre also touched upon the difference between virtual reality and augmented reality, the latter of which has been more of a focus for Apple in recent years thanks to ARKit in iOS. Apple has been tied to potential future products that could use either AR or VR, but Survios is specifically focused on VR and McTyre said AR is just “not as far along yet as VR.”

The concept that AR is a version of VR but better, in my mind, is not true. It’s a different experience. Televisions did not make movies obsolete. Movies did not make books obsolete. Mobile gaming did not making console gaming obsolete, and console gaming did not make PC gaming obsolete. It’s all nonsense. We’ve been through this a million times over the last century. It’s a new medium, and AR and VR are different. Is there overlap, just like TV and movies have overlap? But they’re not the same thing.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a USB-C Clamp Hub Pro for the 2017 iMac or iMac Pro

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

For this week’s giveaway, we’ve teamed up with Satechi to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a USB-C Clamp Hub Pro that’s designed for the 2017 iMac and iMac Pro.

Priced at $49.95, the Clamp Hub Pro plugs into one of the Thunderbolt 3 ports on an iMac or iMac Pro and attaches right to the bottom of the display to put additional ports right where you need them.


Because the Clamp Hub Pro attaches cleanly to the bottom of the iMac or iMac Pro with an adjustable knob, it adds ports without cluttering your desktop or adding visible bulk to the machine. Beyond plugging it into a Thunderbolt 3 port, no additional installation is required.


The Clamp Hub Pro features a USB-C port (for data only), 3 USB-A ports to attach USB-A peripherals, a microSD card slot, and a standard SD card slot. Clamp Hub Pro comes in either Space Gray or Silver, so it can match the traditional iMac and the Space Gray iMac Pro.


The USB-C port supports transfer speeds of up to 5Gb/s, as do the three USB-A ports, while the two card slots support transfer speeds of up to 104Mb/s. The Clamp Hub Pro is compatible only with the iMac and the iMac Pro, which are the only two desktops with USB 3.


We have 10 of Satechi’s Clamp Hub Pro accessories to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winners and send the prizes.
