Independent VR platform Transport nets $25 million

California-based virtual reality startup Wevr has received $25 million from investors including HTC and Samsung to further develop its independent VR distribution platform, Transport. 

California-based virtual reality startup, Wevr, has received $25 million from investors including HTC and Samsung to further develop its independent VR distribution platform, Transport. 

Transport is being billed as a device agnostic "curated content network" that gives creators the ability to target multiple VR platforms at once.

According to Wevr, the service will be made available on both mobile and living room headsets such as the Samsung Gear VR and Oculus Rift, allowing devs who publish through Transport to tap into a variety of markets.

It's not clear yet what monetization options it will offer, although Wevr has explained that Transport "will allow creators to build an audience, and, as their popularity increases, monetize their content."
