Spending an entire day looking at a screen could be terrible for some but follow this journey on how someone spent 24 hours in a VR Game. From waking up to watching the sunrise, he spent the entire time with the headset on. VR Content Creation is becoming more popular and we want to measure the health effects.

Note: We don’t recommend anyone try this. Please watch the videos below instead of harming yourself.

Disrupt, a popular YouTube channel recently spent 24 Hours in Minecraft VR.

A month before this, they tested how a week in a VR headset would turn out:

Health

A common concern about Virtual Reality is being too close to the screen. I’m sure most of us can remember our parents not sitting too close to the TV when we were younger and now the screen is even closer than ever.

Of course, too much of something is bad and moderation is key. 168 hours straight will indeed be very unhealthy, even 24 hours is bad. But this isn’t regular. Having gaming sessions or being in VR for a couple of hours is completely okay.

If you do want to read more about the health aspect, Oculus and HTC have their “Health and Safety“. They advise the users to be at least 13 years old to use virtual reality and recommend taking breaks after some time.

Since virtual reality in this consumer version is relatively new, there isn’t much scientific evidence that shows the negative aspects and future consequences.

Spending an entire day in virtual reality can lead to eye strains, motion sickness, and other psychological problems but none of this should stop you from joining the community. Spending normal amounts of time, just like being on a computer, will most likely not harm you or cause problems to your health.
