There’s not much I can say, to establish this video on other than it’s just one of the incredible opportunities that virtual reality brings. UploadVR noticed it first. CS Mott Children’s Hospital used the Oculus Rift, with a hand from the beginning of the game and the school Mott Golf Classic, to children who are stuck in a crappy hospital situations elsewhere. Much of the land. Maybe in the game. But the important part is, he got them “out of the hospital.”
This is something that is very personal to me when I first got really interested in VR and AR, and I’m getting a stem cell transplant at UCSF this year. I was locked on the floor, and sometimes in my room for a few weeks at a time. I’ll share the story another day, but please spend a few minutes watching the children get the thrill of a lifetime. And more importantly, from their hospital bed, if only for a moment.
In the beginning, a child screaming “I’m on top of the world!”
Welcome to tears of joy.
Virtual reality is here to stay, and this is more important than just play games or watch a boxing match in a more exciting way. He could, and change lives. Imagine this kind of happiness in children’s hospitals everywhere, all the time. Then think about how doctors can train operation in practice. Pretty amazing stuff, eh?
