During their VR-focused event during the week, NVIDIA showed off the first look at Everest VR. If you're like me, the first question you're asking is 'what is Everest VR?'

Well, Everest VR is from Sólfar Studios and RVX, where NVIDIA hardware was used to combine over 300,000 high-res images of Everest into a 3D mesh and textures that is claimed to be the "definitive" CGI model of Everest. Former CCP Games staff now work at Sólfar Studios, with the new company completely focused on VR experiences.

Everest VR is planned for PC, and will be available next year.
