The life of sick children is really tough as they have to spend a lonely life on the hospital bed for days, weeks or even months. There are no children to talk about and play. This often pushes them towards loneliness and even towards depression.
Virtual reality VR headsets can make their life little easier. Michigan’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital experimented with an Oculus Rift development kit to see whether this development kit is able to bring some excitement in their lives and reduce loneliness.
The children were obviously happy, and they really smiled after a long time.
