No more than ever, we are relying on technology to stay connected with those we love the most. It has been difficult not to see family members, friends, and anybody who is not able to be with us in person right now.
However, I was just introduced to the free Alcove app for Oculus Go, and I love how it can help family members and friends connect, across many generations, by helping everyone connect together inside a virtual world.
After you download the free app using your Oculus device, you can set up your family corner, and get up to three of your family members to join in, you can then sit together virtually and explore using the app, from the comfort of each of your own living rooms.
In your family corner, you can sit down and watch videos together, play games, practice meditation, or even go swimming with dolphins in the Pacific Ocean. Yup, all in the VR surround screen. You can also just sit down and chat with each other. It is so much fun!
From health and wellness activities to fun entertaining adventures. There is something fun to do for everyone in the family. This is the perfect way to connect right now while keeping your distance and protecting elder and high-risk family members.
You can also explore travel destinations virtually if you are missing travelling right now. Great way to escape from your current location for a bit, while journeying around the globe virtually, no passport or mask needed!
Alcove is a product of AARP Innovation Labs and was built to help break down the barriers of social isolation. I love how technology can help us stay connected! For more information about Alcove, please visit their website HERE.

Today AR and BP technologies have gained very great popularity in various fields of activity. This is especially true in marketing. I really like the idea of AR and VR applications in order to interest new clients and entertain old ones. I myself am engaged in the development of 2D characters and 3D graphics.
I have thought so many times of entering the blogging world as I love reading them. I think I finally have the courage to give it a try. Thank you so much for all of the ideas!
