The majority of vr headset manufacturers are setting age limits. Everyone who s tried it agrees.
However it is very expensive so many people can t afford it.
How to convince your parents to get a vr headset. Don t yell demand or argue with them if they seem doubtful at first. Always show your parents that you re a mature kid with good behavior. Virtual reality is mind blowing.
If you re looking to slowly and safely ease virtual reality into your child s life then listen up. See what they like and provide that. The htc vive is the latest virtual reality headset and is an amazing piece of technology.
Explain calmly what you want and the steps you re willing to take to earn it. Also a new quest is on its way so i would wait for that. Once you strap on that headset you truly believe you re strolling on a parisian street careening on a roller coaster or immersed in the human body exploring the inner workings of the esophagus but for all its coolness and its potential uses from education to medicine not a lot is known about how vr affects kids.
The oculus rift and samsung s gear vr headset have a 13 age rating. Support resolved. Expect a lot of crashes and bugs.
Instead of piece by piece showing your child a vr headset and the things you can do with it immerse them straight into the world of vr. The quest isn t a super ultra fast vr headset it s like using a samsung phone in vr. Explain to them why you want it what you plan to do with it and why this can t be done in real life i m sure most parents can appreciate standing face to face with darth vader and then if you have a friend that has one let them experience it you won t understand what vr truly is until you can experience its power and how far we can go with it.
How to i convince my parents. Sony s playstation vr is not to be used by children under. It s the only way to truly show your child the true scale of virtual reality.
But you need to get them to love vr for what it is a window to the world and perhaps to the whole universe. Get yourself a cheap headset and introduce your family to those experiences. The more polite and reasonable you are the more likely your parents will listen to you.
I barely use my quest anymore because it s so far behind top of the range headsets. Of course it s great if your tastes can merge so that you and your family can enjoy vr experiences together.
