We’ve all been there.
You’re on a cruise, and you’re in your cabin, and a new VR experience pops up.
But it’s so much more than just an immersive experience.
You feel like you’re actually in the room, you feel like the person in the VR is you, and they’re not just looking at you.
You can feel your body and hear your voice, you can feel the light hitting your eyes.
And that’s all in VR.
What you’re really doing in VR is actually seeing and hearing things that aren’t there.
For example, when I first heard about Virtual Reality, I didn’t know what it was.
It seemed so new, so unheard of.
I went to a tech conference in LA, and everyone was talking about VR, and I went up to the table and said, “I want to try it.”
The room was so packed, and the people were so excited.
I didn and then I went home and made a video.
That was the beginning.
Today, I’m making videos about the technology.
My first VR video is called “Porcelain,” and it’s a look at the evolution of virtual reality from the very beginning.
But there are also some things that have never been done.
For one, virtual reality hasn’t been seen by people who have had children.
You could say, “We have to figure out how to get the most out of the technology, and that’s how we’re going to make it accessible to everybody.”
But there’s another way that virtual reality is very much about children and families.
When you look at a kid who’s already had a VR experience, you want to help them experience the experience as if they were just there.
It’s about the experience of the child as a human being, not a computer.
You have to be able to connect with your child as if you were the person they were looking at.
And the more you can connect with the child, the better they will experience virtual reality.
When I was doing my research for my first video, I was watching a child play with a toy.
I could feel their hands and fingers on the toy, but the real sensation I got was the feel of their body on the object, and what it felt like to actually be on their body.
As soon as I showed them a virtual reality headset and a camera, I realized that there was no way they could have had that experience.
When it came to getting a kid to feel real, there’s only one way.
I know that’s a lot to digest, but it’s really important.
If we’re talking about the first time a kid has experienced VR, it’s not just about a virtual world, it also has to be about the time it takes them to get comfortable.
I had a kid go from a one-year-old to a toddler and I would always tell them to be patient.
And so, the key to making a good virtual reality experience is being patient.
There’s no rush to get to VR.
It takes time.
I can’t tell you how many hours a week I spend on my iPhone, and as a parent, I’ve always thought about that.
So I was able to figure it out and put a lot of thought into what I needed to do to get kids excited about VR.
I think the trick to making it easier is having a clear goal.
When we talked about making a video about virtual reality, I wanted to talk about what the goal was, and how we could get kids to get excited about virtual worlds.
I wanted them to feel like they were doing something meaningful.
And if they felt like they had something to prove, they would be ready to dive in and learn.
The key to a good VR experience is having that clear goal, and having a lot more time to plan for the experience.
So, let’s talk about my process.
I go through a lot.
I’m a video maker.
I don’t just make videos.
I have a lot on my plate, and when I’m working on a video, there are certain tasks that I need to do.
For this project, I needed something quick, and fast.
I was really looking for something that could be done in less than an hour.
That’s where I found a video that I could make in about five minutes.
What I did differently is that I needed it to be quick.
I need it to feel natural.
I want it to move quickly, so that when I do end up on a slow video, the first thing I do is to pause it.
That way, the kid can come back and enjoy the experience even more.
When my video was complete, I then decided to do a little bit of research on what kinds of VR experiences have been done before, and if I could find something that was similar to the one I was looking for.
I searched for VR movies that had kids.
I found one that was very similar, but with a lot less people
