Virtual Reality Offers A Last Walk In The Sun For Sick Grandmother

Most of us think of virtual reality as the next big thing in gaming. But this sad yet inspiring story of an ailing grandmother's last days puts a powerful new spin on the technology. An artist in the gaming industry, Priscilla Firstenberg, had the idea that the Oculus Rift VR headset might provide a welcome escape for her terminally ill grandmother, Roberta. The possibilities for virtual reality as therapy are widely recognized by tech-savvy psychologists and therapists; older VR systems have been used to expose phobic patients to the things they fear, such as spiders or high places.
