Envelop's upcoming app will let you use any Windows app in VR

A company called Envelop will release an app on Friday, August 5 that will enable owners of the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift headsets to view and use any Windows applications in virtual reality.

Evelop's press release says their Windows VR app has been in closed beta testing for the past several months. It adds:

Users can open multiple windows, adjust them to any size, and place them wherever they want, improving multi-tasking capabilities and allowing for customization of a personal work space for improved productivity and efficiency while computing. Virtual reality users can now shop online, check social media, work in Microsoft Office and watch a YouTube video all at the same time.

The app itself will be released for free via Steam. It will require a PC with Windows 10 installed, along with a GPU similar to or better than an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290.
