==Goals and Intentions==* One of the goals of OpenVR is to create an open platform with no gatekeepers. The SDK is distributed on a licence with no content restriction. There is no certification process for OpenVR apps. These apps are not required to be distributed on [[Steam]] or another digital distribution platform.
*Lower barrier to entry for new hardware. OpenVR allows existing apps to run on new hardware without any modifications.
*OpenVR apps are ''future proof''. OpenVR [[runtime]] updates without any application changes. Apps do not need to be modified to support new hardware or software updates.
