When starting Arkio with a VR headset connected users can still enable a third-person hybrid camera that can be used for local PC and VR collaboration.
A smooth camera can be toggled on using the camera controls in the top-left corner of the screen (note this impacts performance depending on your hardware).
You can also press the screen icon to start a 3rd person camera for a fixed spectator position and local screen-based collaboration.

In 3rd person mode, your PC users can collaborate locally with the VR user using the same PC. They can make live notes on the model using sketches, help the VR user login to a meeting, load models or even model and adjust the geometry together with the VR user.
Arkio can be used without a VR headset on a PC and on iOS or Android tablet or phone. In the screen mode of Arkio, it's easy to navigate around or use modeling tools like create, edit and move operations.
On devices that support AR capabilities, it's possible to view the model in Augmented Reality mode, and to paint and delete shapes simply by tapping on them. Please see the screen user interface for more information on using the non-VR version of Arkio.
