Launched last month for Samsung’s mobile head-mounted display was Guided Meditation VR. Created by Cubicle Ninjas the app is a relaxing getaway from the everyday stresses and strains of daily life. The studio has now revealed that since the virtual reality (VR) experience launched it’s achieved over 100,000 downloads in 40 days.
Guided Meditation VR allows users to virtually rest in exotic locations across the globe, without leaving the comfort of their home or office, with the Gear VR community enjoying more than 270 days, or 40 weeks, of non-stop VR meditation.
And it’s not just the casual user who’s enjoying Cubicle Ninjas app, as Guided Meditation VR is currently undergoing clinical trials whilst being utilized in hospitals, pain treatment centres, and psychiatrist offices across the globe.
Further support is also coming to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive this year as well. Later this month Guided Meditation VR will launch a demo on both platforms. Then later this year Guided Meditation VR will head towards a full release across both systems.
