AltspaceVR surprises a long-distance couple in VR with a love song for Valentine’s Day

Posted on March 4, 2017

Aside from their day jobs, there are two things that AltspaceVR employees have an affinity for: playing musical instruments and loving their community of users. This past Valentine’s Day, the team got wind that Ben, an AltspaceVR regular, wanted to do something special for his girlfriend, Shoo Shoo. It didn’t take long for The Rubenoids (the internal AltspaceVR jam band that usually performs in the office on Friday evenings) to rise to the occasion and perform a cover of Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours”.

Ben had used the AltspaceVR SDK (Software Development Kit) to design a custom space to surprise Shoo Shoo. It was complete with a spiral staircase, stage, curtains, dimmed lights with thematic wallpaper, and bar with barstools, which provided the perfect venue for a musical serenade. It all went off without a hitch, and while The Rubenoids won’t be winning a Grammy anytime soon, they sounded pretty good for a spur-of-the-moment performance.
