VR therapy for astronauts: HTC sends VR headset into space
In collaboration with XRHealth and Nord-Space Aps, HTC is adapting the Vive Focus 3 for use in space. The VR headset will be used to prevent mental illness among astronauts during their space missions. A VR therapy is designed to help maintain the mental balance of the men and women working in isolated, stressful conditions. Danish astronaut Andreas Mogensen will be the first subject to use the HTC Vive Focus 3 on a six to eight month NASA mission.
