To get to the point, I have kids, age 4 and 2, that LOVE Vr. I keep it simple and only few minutes at a time, but their minds are blown when they can stand at the landing sight of mars curiosity, or draw in full 360 3D on quill. My 4 year old daughter has recently become obsessed with flying in VR. I have let her play with Rush vr and Ultrawings, but she has become addicted. I do not feel they are bad influences as she loves to fly, but is there any real downside to her viewing vr? I try to keep it to 30 minute sessions or less, only 10 or minutes for 2 year old. But, it is clear to see she would spend hours in it if I let her. Here is her playing Rush:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8S-n3cdsMIM&t
She loves VR flying so much I paid for a lesson to fly in a Cessna 172, and she did fantastic, flew 15 minutes of the 1.5 hour flight solo, instructor agreed she was a natural. She has begged to fly again ever since. I do feel Vr is the best way to train. I do own both Oculus and HTC Vive, i'm just concerned on effects of prolonged exposure. I do feel at current rate by migrating to Microsoft flight sim X or Xplane she could have her pilots licence by 11 or 12, but will there be any visual or emotional damage from using VR as such a tool. Just curious of opinions from other users or any VR data I have not seen yet, let me know. Thank you in advance for any help.
Here is a 360 video of her flying if anyone wants a VR view of her flying over coast in Florida...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWMub2FmYss
