The initial batch of companies in what could be the first virtual reality accelerator have been announced.

Among the projects selected by Rothenberg Ventures’ River are a system that creates 360-degree VR imagery, a headset that uses eye-tracking to build immersive experiences, and an embedded-in-VR journalism project.

Each company got $100,000, office space and regular advice and help from a team of expert mentors that includes Philip Rosedale, the founder of Linden Lab and High Fidelity.
