ITA member Cubicle Ninjas has just released Guided Meditation, a VR demo designed to relax you. Sample meditative environments include Birchnut Forest, Cosmo Canyon, Costa Del Sol, and Yokosuka Garden.
There is something to be said for putting on a set of headphones, strapping on that Rift, and being able to shut out the world to relax for awhile. Great stuff!
Cubicle Ninjas is a professional marketing agency with 30+ employees on staff. VR is a critical part of their current strategy, and there is a story here.
Based on Pubmed, CNN reports that an individual has been treated for Google Glass addiction along with other substance abuse issues. Signs of addiction were indicated when the patient was uncontrollably irritable when not wearing his Glass device, and he was involuntarily touching his temples which is part of the regular Glass operation even when he wasn't wearing the device.
It took 35 days of treatment to reduce the symptoms of this problem (along with other issues).
