This week on ResearchVR we've discussed an experiment we all would like to do ourselves - 100 hours in VR, or in other words, looking for effects of prolonged VR usage on human body and mind.


Here is a list of most prominent issues we've talked about:

  • motivations for 100h experiment
  • expectations going in:
  • imposter syndrome
  • social VR culture - groups, shifts, and future potential
  • Experience of staying in VR
  • Passthrough camera to eat and piee breaks with GearVR, showered wit gearvr on
  • Brain recognises where it is: Dreaming vs Real world vs VR
  • Ethics of VR
  • switching between Resolution of the world
  • physical strain on the body
  • Screen-door effect
  • cannabies vs VR Experience
