Vive Day: Anniversary Backgrounds & Desktop Wallpapers
 
 

One of our favorite features of SteamVR is the ability to change the compositor background image. So, to celebrate Vive Day, we’ve created and collected some special anniversary images for you to enjoy both in and out of VR. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed creating and curating them.

Special thanks to independent artist Android Jones for providing one of his creations to all of us in honor of Vive Day. You can view more of his stunning, psychedelic artwork on his website at http://androidjones.com/.
