TRIPP uses images like this one in virtual reality to change your mindset.
Mood-altering VR: TRIPP
So far, entertainment is the biggest use for virtual reality. A startup called Tripp wants to use to it help you chill out. Strap on a headset and the Tripp software transports you to a groovy land, where an always-changing kaleidoscope of images and concentration games try to shift your mental state. Its makers say they’ve seen a mood shift of over 20 percent per session, on average. I tried it in one of the least-Zen places on earth — CES — and felt calmer in under 10 minutes. Its makers call it an “adaptive digiceutical,” a mental health prescription that doesn’t require a pill.
