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..
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!
Anyone done a scan of Boise? The roads and like especially, so get an idea of how they flow or do not? Show it in a VR form, to show people ... much like the architectural idea but city planning?
Like to stop by and checking out Goldys Corner, it is local, close to the Clear Water, on the corner of Capital/Main, has a nice patio and inside big screen TVs and places to sit and converse, big table in the back. But also a good place to show the fun of VR to people. I hang out here and enjoy the place.
VR and use for call in tech support and like, and not become a problem of its own? I have worked around or in the call center world and how can VR effect it?
Might talk to the architect at Coles and also the one on 11th? I mentioned the VR/Arch event and they was interested.. Not sure who else would be interested? Does the City and like know of things?
Anyone done any music videos in VR?

Matt Sizemore KIVI

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!

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.
