  • To Simulate The Experience Of Death on Random Weird Things You Didn't Know Virtual Reality Was Being Used Fo

    (#1) To Simulate The Experience Of Death

    As death anxiety is common in terminally ill patients, designer Frank Kolkman created a virtual reality device meant to roughly simulate the experience of dying. Based on both testimony regarding near death experiences and the clinical process of dying, Kolkman device incorporates actual video footage of real life surroundings to help those suffering fatal illnesses feel at peace with death. 

    To use the device, users stand in front of a robotic head while cameras play a live video stream that allows user to look around their own surroundings. An automatic hammer helps mimic the sound of a heartbeat, making the experience more physical. A user's face and body is reflected back at them. This is meant to mimic out of body sensations that are a common aspect of near death experiences. 

    Kolkman hopes his invention will ease anxiety for patients near death. He also hopes to start a more direct, open conversation about the topic of death in hospitals.

    (#7) To Preserve the Integrity of a Crime Scene Forever

    Imagine if jurors on a criminal case could take a walk around the crime scene on their own two feet, preserved exactly as it was when the police found it, while counsel points out the evidence of note. This is the future of the justice system as envisioned by some of the minds at Staffordshire University.

    By having first responders record the crime scene in VR, there will forever remain a virtual replica of the area, unmarred by time and human error. This VR simulation can be used by jurors or police investigating the crime years later.
