Reimagining how the existing home screen would look like in a VR space

To accomplish having the home screen better work in VR, we envisioned a new modular tile system, which can show more content and be more friendly in a VR space

The benefit of this modular system being that apps and games that you use more often would increase in size, thus making them easier to interact with. This modular approach can also benefit Sony and it’s partners to serve up advertising content and allow more flexibility compared to the previous design.

Taking advantage of the 360 degree nature of VR, instead of flipping through menus using the controller, the user is able to establish shortcuts where they can view frequented menus. In this example, you’d turn you head to the left to see “Profile”, look up to see “Notifications” and move to the right to see your “Social Grid”
