The demos available on the MozVR include a WebGL based flyover of British Columbia and a visualization of data as art that accommodate Leap Motion along side the Oculus Rift.

To experience the site in virtual reality, users need a VR-enabled build of Firefox for Mac or PC, and an Oculus Rift headset. It will also work with VR-enabled builds of Chromium. Mozilla has also shared source code for MozVR to make it easier for others to build their own VR websites.
