My husband has ALS and has lost the ability to use his hands. I am trying to find interesting things for him to do besides TV and internet . He used to love to travel and is always interested in all kinds of history. Can you tell me if he will be able to use the immersive travel apps and other experiences without the use of his hands? I do not have any experience with this type of product but saw it featured in a segment of CBS Sunday Morning and it got me excited about another way to keep him engaged.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Ma'am it is honestly hit or miss on what you can do in these apps seeing as oculus still haven't implemented a universal, global setting that allows you to go to each app with the exact same height, reach, orientation etc. I'm in a wheelchair but blessed enough to transfer to a tall stool inorder to play certain games like beat saber, pavlov, and onward in which the developers don't care enough to allow us to make specific changes. Like beat saber, I cant bend down to avoid the obstacles so its usually an instant fail, so to help they let you turn off obstacles but it cost you 5% off your score so wow thanks for that! Pavlov and onward make it where you cant run/sprint so you basically can't play the game.
So I own most everything in the games store so if you want, tell me exactly what to recreate and I will go into whatever app/game for you using the parameters you need and upload the results for you to youtube. If I don't own the app/game then I'll buy it anyway because vr is supposed to be an escaped for EVERYONE and I really want to help you find him something he'll enjoy and most importantly NOT add any unnecssary stress in the process.
