Samsung Tests Out Bedtime VR Stories

Samsung has made a prototype of its Bedtime VR Stories, an immersive experience that allows a parent and child to experience a bedtime story together, even if they can’t physically be in the same space.

The “Most Wonderful Place to Be” story allows for the two participants to travel on a magic bed to the arctic, a pre-historic world, and outer space.

“With Bedtime VR Stories, we’re hoping that this prototype will show an important new exciting genre of virtual experience – and something that will define the use of virtual reality over the coming years, Conor Pierce, Vice President of IT & Mobile Division for Samsung UK & Ireland, tells The Inspiration Room. “We’ve harnessed the power of VR to reunite parents and children for a unique storytelling experience, giving us a glimpse of what the traditional story time may look like in the very near future.”

Watch a trailer for the experience below.

And here is a walkthrough from the POV of the child.
