A new virtual reality experience features patients at St. Jude’s Hospital offering words of encouragement to the Inspiration4 SpaceX mission crew.
Voices of Inspiration launches today on Oculus Quest via App Lab and was created by Z3VR and Lucas Rizzotto. If you’ve ever experienced Rizzotto’s VR work, namely Where Thoughts Go, this will probably sound quite familiar to you. Check it out in the trailer below.
The experience sees players soar into the stars to explore a series of themed environments. As you explore, you’ll come across questions posed by the astronauts of Inspiration4, the first fully civilian space flight crew. They seek guidance and encouragement from St. Jude patients who are at various stages of the cancer battle. Touching the orbs allows you to hear what patients had to say, which is the element you will likely recognize from Where Thoughts Go. Illustrations for patients can also be found inside the experience.
This is another great example of the positive impact VR can have that we have seen this week. Earlier today, we also reported that Help for Haiti is also looking to the platform for its latest fundraising event.
