Inside the Mind of a Schizophrenic Through Virtual Reality
blottsie writes Viscira produces videos and technology simulations for the healthcare industry, and the project I tested called “Mindscape” was created for a pharmaceutical company that wanted to give potential clients insight into what some schizophrenic patients might feel like in a real-life scenario. Unlike audio tests or videos that show you a first-person perspective of schizophrenic experiences, Viscira’s demonstration uses the Oculus Rift headset and is entirely immersive. You can look around at each individual’s face, and up and down the hallway. Walk through the elevator, and hear voices that appear to be coming from both strangers and your own head.
