Our ninjas are honored to be highlighted in Crain’s featuring our work on the first consumer focused health and wellness app in virtual reality, Guided Meditation VR.
From Crain’s article “Can Virtual Reality Improve Mental Health?”
Virtual reality is no longer just a gimmick from sci-fi TV shows. Thanks to recent advancements in technology, everyday smartphones can be used in affordable mainstream VR headsets like the Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream View.
While the technology has a major stake in the recreational market, many entrepreneurs are thinking outside the box and expanding VR into all aspects of our lives—even mental health. Everyone from certified clinicians to amateur app developers has begun to recognize its usefulness in mental health treatments.
When we started making VR apps for business (way back in 2014) our hope was to create unique experiences that helped showcase a small bit of the untapped potential of the medium. The idea of using VR for personal wellness was a more challenging initial battle than we ever expected. But today, with hundreds of thousands of users, millions of heart beats captured, and new functionality launching in August on mobile and desktop, the response has gone beyond our wildest hopes.
We can’t wait to share what’s on the horizon. Stay tuned next week for a major announcement!
