VR also stands for virtual reality is a simulated experience that can be similar from the real world. It doesn’t require much for people to have this sort of experience, as long as you have the headset, controller, plus some space, everyone can experience this virtual reality. I actually bought my first one last year and the experience it gave you was like no others. Everything is so real even though you know it only appearing in your headset.
Just like the article says, because of these amazingly real experiences, it can be a potential part for helping serious mental problems like PTSD and so on. Usually during a PTSD treatment, the doctor will ask the patient to imagine the traumatic experience. However, with the help with VR, instead of just imaging, it will be so much easier for patients to work with the treatment. Not only treating PTSD, VR technology can help so many other people with all kinds of mental problems. Perhaps, this VR technology works for some people and some don’t; but the idea behind it is by using technology to help people to feel better and be more positive.
