Passive Virtual Reality Experiences

Below is a listing of current Passive Virtual Reality Experiences.  These are video links and will play on any television, computer, tablet, or phone, but were designed to be viewed using VR Goggles. 

The Richmond Hospital Education Program works with students who have significant cognitive and physical limitations within the Children's Hospital of Richmond.  Because these patients have limited abilities to leave the hospital, the passive virtual reality project was born!  We decided to use virtual reality goggles and film experiences with 170-degree cameras and fields of vision, to allow students to virtually travel outside the walls of the hospital.

These videos included horseback riding, biking, visiting parks, monuments, historical sites, museums, and even amusement parks!  Patients are able to wear virtual reality goggles and travel with us anywhere our film crews have gone! 

So that our patients can truly experience these videos as if they were there, the videos have no music or narration, and conversations in the videos were limited to others speaking to the camera.  Each video simply contains the natural sights and sounds of the experience being viewed! 

Below are links to our many travels in hopes you can use them with your patients, children, or students to come along with us on a trip or two.
