How Virtual Reality Could Help Seniors

It’s the next step everybody is expecting technology to make. Virtual reality is coming in ways that not even science fiction writers could’ve imagined. We’re going to be able to mold virtual 3D sculptures and enter digital worlds. Most of that is years away but it is being developed. However, Samsung, LG, Oculus, and other companies are creating virtual reality systems that could be in your living room very soon. Senior Housing News explains that two grad students from MIT are trying to make it so seniors can benefit from this groundbreaking technology.

The article explains that the MIT students Reed Hayes and Dennis Lally have developed software that works with Samsung’s Gear VR system so seniors can experience environments and events like never before. They’d be able to see places they weren’t able to visit in their younger years or revisit places that they knew as children. They’ve been trying it out at a few senior living communities and are excited to share their invention. Hayes explains to Senior Housing News that while users have the opportunity to see whole different countries, even outer space, they’ve seen the most emotional impact when they can take them in front of their childhood homes.

The future is bright and the opportunities are infinite. Innovators like Hayes and Lally are taking great strides in providing ways for seniors to enjoy every moment. We can’t wait to see how we can make each resident’s life a little brighter!
