While augmented and virtual reality is inspiring gamers and enterprises, there is a new initiative that’s covering social welfare. Gamers Gift, a nonprofit enterprise, is bringing VR to assisted living facilities and hospitals.

Co-founder and CEO Dillon Hill of Gamers Gift said that he wasn’t satisfied with more conventional volunteering prospects. Rather, providing opportunities to patients to try out VR for the first time is more rejuvenating for them.

People at these facilities are enjoying numerous pop cultures, as in the likes of Star Wars, through VR. Patients get to see a whole new world that boosts their mental health, which in turn optimistically affects their cure. As for passionate donors, you can log on to Twitch, view the Gamers Gift channel, and donate.

Gamers Gift

A student-run non-profit enterprise, Gamers Gift has faith in the aspects of Virtual Reality. The enterprise is only one-and-half-year old, and it has so far raised more than $50,000 on Twitch. It is raising funds on a live streaming platform starting today.

Virtual Reality Devices

Alongside social welfare, the introduction of various VR devices is influencing today’s world for the better in different fields. Therefore, it’s not just gaming or entertainment that virtual reality is covering to enhance user experience.

The likes of WebVR on Windows, the Radeon RX 580 video card, Samsung Gear, and Google Daydream VR headsets are mentionable for PC and mobile VR experiences. The Unreal Engine 4.17 acts as a spectator screen for PC VR apps. Animated VR characters are also receiving treatments, with Google Blocks being a professional VR creation tool.
