With immune systems incredibly susceptible, exposure to friends can become a danger some families can’t afford to risk. As a result, hospital rooms can become a lonely place for days, weeks, months or even years of a child’s life. By using virtual reality, kids in hospitals would be able to socialize with friends or explore new places while they are in their rooms. Something that was impossible before.
