Relax VR: A Getaway In Your Living Room

Relax VR: Rest and Meditation

Relax VR: Rest and Meditation is new way to rejuvenate yourself. Quickly escape to relax on a beautiful beach, watch the clouds go by or lie in rice paddles. Listen to soft, soothing, melodic tunes while gazing over at an ocean doing a gentle meditation.

Maker, Availability and Price

NOW TECHNOLOGY PTY. LTD created Relax VR as their first Virtual Reality experience. The App falls under the category of “Health and Fitness” in the Apple iTunes store. It is approximately a 450 MB download and requires iOS 8.0 and up to run. Although many applications in the iTunes App Store are offered free, Relax VR is not one of them. It costs $1.99 to download, but that is cheaper than actually vacationing to one of these beautiful places the app offers.

Pros:

  1. Help calm down, and relax you as you escape to an exotic place.
  2. With headphones, it can allow you to have the perfect place to meditate.
  3. Spatial audio is beautiful.
  4. Besides just picking a beach, you can pick a certain destination in the world to fit your mood.
  5. Updates every month or two with new destinations.
  6. Great quality.

Cons: 

  1. $1.99 instead of it being a free app.
  2. A lot of space to download. Half a gigabyte. (500 MB)
  3. Some glitches can occur. Scene does not load properly the first time.
  4. App can crash unexpectedly.
  5.  Can run down your battery power easily.

How It Works

  • Select your scene
  • Put your phone into the VR headset (headphones are optional, but are recommended)
  • Choose between guided Yoga music, or calming, peaceful music.
  • Let the beauty of the scene, music and calmness let you slip into a soothing/meditation escape.
  • Emerge feeling rested and calm.

Audience

Relax VR is for ages 12 and up, but can be used for ages below 12. This app does not focus on a certain target audience because they want anyone/everyone to try this VR meditation escape! It’s perfect after a long stressful day, or if you are looking for your daily meditation.
