    • PC: Access the same world of VR users and have the same features, except for those strictly for VR (Like some games, gestures.) Be in the same space of VR users and enjoy the experience from your PC.
    • WEB: this is the lighter version and accessible from everyone from the browser. Other from mobile or your PC, you can enjoy many features and use cases of Somnium with one click.
