What We Do
VR Kids is a Las Vegas based nonprofit group that brings our therapeutic virtual reality to hospital and homebound children ages 5 and up. We custom design our own virtual reality experiences from ground up using the Oculus Rift platform. Our experiences are designed to take focus off discomfort that comes along with extended hospital stays, medical treatments, and procedures. We do not claim to cure conditions; no, rather it's our goal to provide a fun, calm, and relaxing time for kids. Using the amazing technology that is virtual reality, our immersive animated storybooks instantly teleport kids to a magical virtual world filled with adventure!
What is Virtual Reality (VR)?
Virtual reality is a computer-simulated environment consisting of three-dimensional images and sounds, making for an immersive and interactive experience for any user. When presented correctly virtual reality can cause a user to suspend belief in the real world around them, thus accepting the simulated environment in which they are participating in to be real. Virtual reality proves to be successful by way of the human senses, specifically sight and sound. Keeping in mind that we all perceive our senses differently, each experience can prove to be unique from the next user, truly creating a distinct experience for all.

Due to the immersive effects of virtual reality, we recognize that some elements such as motion and lighting may be too intense for certain individuals. We have the ability to remove certain elements from our storybook experiences, ensuring each user has an experience that accommodates their needs.
