Filming Boise while driving and using the video as a means to do a VR Video Game of how much fun
it is to drive here and maybe also show how to know how to drive here in Boise, as teaching tool?

Same can go for Meridian and like race ways?

https://www.facebook.com/groups/TreasureValleyEntertainment/
anyone done any VR in special interest groups, such as any of the local LARP and like, be it Trek or Medieval?
Future of VR? Its uses for more than just the basics? Such as training people how to drive? doing CPR and like medical procedures and like? What else is showing some promise?
What would it take to film and convert, if not already being done, to convert a sport event to a VR presentation, so you feel like you was actually there? Already being done and what licensing would it take? Mike Adams

Anyone checked out Blackbox so far? I have, nice place for fun, how to advertise it and get things connected to the crowd that might love to use it? Sports fan, such as how many leave the Centurylink and then go down past it? Anyone doing a add campaign for sports fans..
It’s amazing to know that people with acquired problems can now get some help own their own by simply downloading a program and putting on a mask. In today’s Finding Hope, I learned how Virtual Reality can help just about anyone, even if in a small way. Special thanks to VR1 Arcade and Idaho Virtual Reality Council for helping with this enlightening story.
We had a great time at Friday's #vrbash scaring people with an impromptu Halloween remix of our goose wave shooter. Thanks Idaho Virtual Reality Council for putting up a great show.
You have such great content about VR, I think it's amazing that this technology can be used for great purposes like chemotherapy! It reminds me of this movie I saw, called Empathy Inc. because it's about a VR technology that lets rich people experience exactly what it's like to be in poverty so that they gain empathy and a better perspective on life. Since the movie is a sci-fi thriller, it took a much darker turn than the news about the chemotherapy, but I thought it was extremely interesting nonetheless. When the true use of the tech was exposed, things got intense and set up the ending of the movie for a crazy plot twist. I thought it was an interesting idea, yet not an example to follow, regarding VR so I thought a lot of the people here might enjoy. I saw it on Amazon, but it should be on all VOD platforms, and the trailer is on YouTube if you are interested. Let me know what you think!
Annie Morley with the Idaho Virtual Reality Council will be our featured speaker this week! We look forward to learning more this Thursday at 7 am at The Riverside Hotel - Boise.

Space Camp Qualifiers:

Many of you know that instead of giving out a BIG prize to one kid we decided to allow up to 20 kids to qualify for SPACE CAMP. Space Camp is 2 day intensive training including Yoga, Reading, a special surprise guest, Virtual Reality Idaho Virtual Reality Council, Rockets 🚀 (The BIG one), drones, and robot battles! Oh and they will compete in Space Trivia Challenges and eat lunch on the International Space Station. 2 Days 9-5 The younger kids had the same requirements as the older kids and so I want to applaud them first. These 5 kids read 50 or more books this summer. They also attended a minimum of 5 days of Summer Reading Program. Our Summer Reading Program kids have collectively read over 3000 books 📚That number is correct! Collectively our Summer Reading Program Kids have read over 3000 books! (after Space Camp we will release the exact total)

Congratulations 🎉 to each of our FUTURE ASTRONAUTS and their parents! You don’t accomplish a task this BIG without some extra attention to reading at home! Thank you for making Summer Reading part of your routine.
We have 5 spots remaining with two more days to qualify. So, I may be adding to the list. 🙂

Holly
Lauren
Zachary
Oliver
Quincy

Cason
Hayven
Breanna
Jackson
Tanner
Isabella
Addy

How technology is positively "masking" debilitating problems

VR1 and the IVRC were interviewed by Channel 6 about VR applications that help with mental health issues and PTSD treatment. Check out the story below!! Thank you Matt Sizemore!

How technology is positively "masking" debilitating problems For many, virtual reality is the latest and greatest way for gamers to escape the real world and have a little fun. For others, it can be a life-saving tool...something demonstrated in a study done last year.
