There is no shortage of wellness driven startups. Nowadays, it seems like every company has taken a strong approach to wellness and mindfulness.
If you’re interested in taking your meditation to the next level, TRIPP may be able to offer you a unique, immersive relaxation experience. According to their website, TRIPP “uses the power of virtual and augmented reality to develop transformative toolkits that incorporate mindfulness structures, targeted visuals, sound frequencies, and gameplay mechanics.”
As the name suggests, TRIPP uses audio and visuals to mimic a psychedelic trip (obviously without hallucinogens). TRIPP’s CEO, Nanea Reeves, told TechCrunch “Many people that will never feel comfortable taking a psychedelic, this is a low-friction alternative that can deliver some of that experience in a more benign way” … “The idea is to take mindfulness structures and video game mechanics together to see if we can actually hack the way that you feel.”
If you’re interested in giving it a try, you can download TRIPP VR on your supporter VR device to try a free demo. Love it? TRIPP has apps available for download on Oculus and PlayStation VR for $4.99/month.
Mindfulness and meditation are incredibly important in anyone’s wellness journey. With technology supporting us in so many ways, it makes sense that VR has the potential to guide us on our meditations.
