Nipun Soni asked a question

VR is the next big thing, can VR applications be built without using a game engine?

Most of the VR applications available today are built using a game engine. Are there any other alternatives/frameworks available to build VR for the web. I came across Web VR from Google and was wondering how they built these.

The experiments listed here https://www.webvrexperiments.com/ are amazing. Virtual Reality is a hot space and the applications that are available are a mere scratch on the surface. 
Given the popularity, building for VR is a challenge as most of the resources require a game engine like Unity.

Facebook's Oculus team just launched ReactVR, and it is opensource, you can find it here https://github.com/facebook/react-vr , this framework doesnt require a game engine and it also supports WebVR.
Go ahead and build your next VR experience on the web.
