You aren’t going to harm your child by letting them check out VR.
There are few adults out there who climb inside of a VR headset and aren’t smiling the whole time. Fully immersing yourself in a virtual environment is an incredible experience, and the wonder we see from those experiences is a big part of why we’re here. Everyone should have the opportunity to explore VR, especially right now when developers are trying so hard to encourage new experiences at every turn. What about our kids, though? Is it safe for children to use any of these VR headsets? If so, what are the rules for making sure they are using these headsets safely? We’ve asked these questions repeatedly over the last year, especially with Google cardboard headed to classrooms and headsets like the View-Master VR specifically targeting children.
