Description: LuxVR is a night mode application for VR. It decreases blue light emitted by your head-mounted display (HMD) and reduces eyestrain during late hours or long time use in virtual reality. It makes the colour of the HMD display adapt to the time of day with respect to your location to help you control your natural sleep-and-wake cycle. Just start the application and it will keep running in the background while you play other VR games/applications.

Review: ‘LuxVR’ is an app that lets you set the blue light levels your headset displays so you can easily play at night without your eyes burning out when you put the VR headset on. The UI is clean, crisp and it does what it needs to do. Or…you can easily turn down the brightness on your VR headset in the menu and do achieve pretty much the same thing. While I do get what the application is doing, if it wasn’t free I would have been slating it.
