Yup, and it's not just a nanny state thing. Besides the basic physicality of the headset not fitting properly due to adults & children having different facial structures, it's unknown whether VR can impact adolescent eye development. There's also the psychological & social development implications, but that's applicable to all computer usage. I'd love for my 9 y/o nephew to experience my quest 2, as it is truly a revolutionary & mind blowing experience. However the headset simply doesn't fit him well enough, and even if it did, my own experience has made me acutely aware how prolonged use can mess with your perception. If it were me, I'd try to delay it at least a year, and also put strict time limits in place; e.g. 30 minute sessions & no more than two sessions a day.
Where is the best place to buy Oculus Quest games? The official store appears to have the most offers that come up on here.
Worth mentioning that all VR manufacturers state a minimum age of 12. Oculus Quest 2 is probably the way to go now that Google cardboard has been retired! PSVR is worth considering as it can be had for around the same £300 mark and has a lot more titles available at present.
(lol) sounds like fun! Good idea tho, I'll do a bit of research and see what's what! I really appreciate the help (y)
My kids usually think we've won the lottery when making a christmas list too lol, The quest 2 comes with pretty much all you need, some people buy a different head strap which is more comfortable and charging docks etc.. but the quest is a stand alone wireless unit, it comes with controllers but can also be used in hand tracking mode for some features where your hand movements are accurately copied onto the screen via its cameras which works really well. I was very impressed, all you need to do is buy games on the store, it can also be linked to pc to play more games . Check it out on youtube maybe ? But i was blown away when using it after a samsung gear vr which is not very good in comparison, it felt so real to my brain after 5 minutes in the demo i tried to lean on a counter that wasn't really there with my hand and fell into the wall (lol)
