Update: Find the latest version of Guided Meditation VR here!
Cubicle Ninjas is always looking for ways to create one of a kind experiences for our customers. When we heard of the virtual reality headset the Oculus Rift we knew it would be the perfect playground to explore. While we backed it on its amazing $2 million plus Kickstarter run, we couldn’t help but pick up a development kit afterwards to build our own creations. Since then our team has been hard at work finding our voice in this medium.
Next week, at the world’s first consumer virtual reality conference SVVR Con, Cubicle Ninjas’ launches our first Virtual Reality app: Guided Meditation!
Need 10-minutes of zen? Enjoy the tranquility of resting on a beach during your lunch break. Relax on the shore while you watch the waves gracefully crashing beside your feet. Take a deep breath of fresh air, as you look up into the clouds. Watch and listen to seagulls flock in the blue sky. And for the first time ever, leave the sunscreen at home.
This is a peek at the trailer for the very first version launched in 2014. We’ve since made it much cooler!

How could virtual reality be used for other businesses?
Michael Abrash, Oculus’ Chief Scientist, says that Virtual Reality isn’t just the next big platform, it may be the ultimate platform. We feel our Guided Meditation VR app is a perfect test case for Virtual Reality business applications, such as:
• Health & Psychological Wellness Virtual Reality Applications
• Virtual Tourism Applications
• Sponsored VR or Event Applications
• Educational VR Apps

Does this version have support for the Oculus DK2? 🙂
This version doesn’t, and while we thought this would be an easy fix the new SDK 0.4 threw us for a loop. But good news: we’re putting the finishing touches on a much better version with full DK2 support. Hoping to release soon, but dependent on the speed of integrating the new SDK! 🙂
Nice news! Looking very much forward to it. Meanwhile I try to calm down my excitement! 😉
Hi hows DK2 going?
Hi Luke – We’re aiming to have a much expanded version for DK2 release by the end of this month! Hoping for a new SDK to address some of the issues.
It’s the end of the month already. And I am badly overdue for some meditation – Eagerly awaiting the DK2 release! 🙂
New version coming as soon as possible. We’re hoping to release when a solution to DK2 judder is found. At the moment we’re in the hands of Oculus to update the SDK for this. Appreciate the patience!:D
Com On!!! We waiting..
Any luck with that judder issue?
We might have a few VR things to share on Monday. Hmm… 😀
Update: Link to Guided Meditation DK2 edition! Hope you enjoy it!
Wonderfully executed concept! I can foresee this kind of “game” as a whole new genre in the next years.
Thanks so much! 😀
Love this app, I am wondering if it is or will be possible though to replace the speaking with my own audio? So I still have the waves crashing but can play my own audio book in there, that’d be amazing.
Thanks Paul! That is definitely in the cards for the full release. You’ll be able to turn off any music or add in any of your own extra music/audio. 🙂
That’s good news I will be buying it!
Tried a demo of this today at a Chicago “We Are Wearables” event. I’m hooked! Incredibly relaxing, immersive experience.
