1. Think about what you're hoping for

  • bringing new experiences for someone who can't travel or is undergoing treatment?
  • bringing delight, personal growth or enjoyment (games, VR interactive stories)
  • helping explore passions (NASA, ocean life or art), a childhood stomping ground (flying over Israel, Cornwall or ) or geography (The Amazon or Antarctica)

 

2. Decide on the relevant VR headset, price point, and capability.

  • If you have a smartphone you can place inside a VR headset frame, or if you want the content delivery built into the headset
  • Will this be a chance to try something with little investment, or are you setting up an immersive environment eg. sound/headphones, game player, etc

 

3. Select and connect to content that best meets your needs or interests.

  • Such as Google Earth, BBC Earth, Disney, Google Expeditions,  Arts & Culture, Travel through the Human Body, Science, and Technology, NASA, Ocean life, History. (see more ideas below)
  • For those capable or curious, consider combining with a drone to fly over and view from an iPad or via a VR headset

 

4.  Once experienced, talk about the experience, try it together taking turns. 

  • Ask questions
  • Make observations
  • Share the experience, and your views, with others in new conversations
  • Challenge what's next 

 

 

A VR headset.

The best starter experiences are headset devices worn over your eyes, with an extension earphones or you can plug a normal set of earbuds into the jack. The front has a sliding component, that enables a smartphone to be inserted while you are using the headset. 

 

The most expensive, standalone ones have the technology inbuilt and are often used for training simulations or gaming such as the Oculus.

 

True VR experience enables you to interact with the objects in your virtual world.  The more accessible way to view “VR” is via 360-degree video, where you can look in any direction at your will and what’s around you.
