This paper introduces a tool set consisting of open source libraries that are being developed to facilitate the quick and easy implementation of collaborative VR applications. It describes functionality that can be used for generating and displaying a Virtual Environment (VE) on varied VR platforms. This is enhanced to provide collaboration support through additional modules such as networking. Two existing VR applications which make use of these tools are described. Both were developed effortlessly over a short period of time, and demonstrate the power of these tools for implementing a diverse range of applications.
