Since April 2018, we are happy
to offer our customers inside the European Union the
YASARA Virtual Reality Workstation including mouse and
keyboard for 175 EUR. Note that you
additionally need a license of YASARA
Dynamics or Structure.
The YASARA VR workstation is
based on YASARA for Android. It combines the
Asus Zenfone 2 with four Intel Atom Z3580 CPU cores @
2.3 GHz, 4 GB RAM and 32 GB flash, used for a few days, but free of scratches or other damage (75
Celexon VRG-1 headset, 10 EUR

The VR workstation runs a fully functional YASARA
Dynamics, with the user interface and all functions
right as you know them from your PC.

The following limitations currently apply to the YASARA VR
If you are not used to typing blindly on a
keyboard, you can still use e.g. the function keys to
change the scene style, but you have to resort to the
slower on-screen keyboard for typing text (i.e. to
specify a PDB ID to load, you need to click letters with
the mouse pointer).
There is no 'asynchronous time warp'. This
means that if the frame rate drops below 60 Hz, the VR
experience becomes less optimal, and if it drops below
30 Hz, there can be 'motion sickness'. YASARA
therefore offers a feature to automatically disable
head-tracking if the frame rate gets too low, turning
the VR workstation into a 3D workstation. In practice,
an interactive MD simulation of hot air can still be
done fast enough for VR, while an interactive MD
simulation of a protein in water with PME takes longer
and should be done without head-tracking.
Only YASARA Dynamics is available for
Android, so you cannot use YASARA
Structure features in the VR workstation, even if
you have a YASARA Structure license.
There are no Python plugins.
Ray-tracing with POV-Ray is not possible,
since there is no POV-Ray for Android. But you can save
