Today I am launching a side project designed to make meditation easier with VR.
SkillMaster VR — Learn Meditation is the first meditation app that allows you to learn meditation in VR by visualizing your breath in real time. It’s a Virtual Reality experience built specifically to help you meditate by using your game controller to track your breath.
Super excited to bring this live in time for the holiday season. I’ve been a practitioner of zazen for almost a decade now. Throughout my own journey with zen, I’ve fallen off the wagon and gotten on several times.
I began looking for ways to sift through all of the philosophy and wisdom associated with Buddhism (there sure is a lot!), and actually apply those to my own meditation. When the HTC Vive came out, I began building experiences for it, I was super excited about breaking ground in a new category: a meditation app that *increased* your focus by tracking how you meditate in real time and providing you feedback when you go off course. For me, I meditate by following my breath. For those who use other meditation objects, we hope to build something for you sometime down the road.
If you want to help get the word out, the game is on the front page of
right now, and could use your support.
