Multi-media, Virtual Reality Programming for Older Adults

A Collaboration Between

Engagement Synopsis

Alchemy Sky Foundation is a nonprofit in Atlanta whose mission is to bring the healing power of music to those who need it. (www.alchemysky.org). Three years ago, we worked with a VR company here in Atlanta (Futurus) and a local church to bring 360-degree video to nursing-home Veterans.  We are looking to conduct market research to analyze the potential for an expanded music-based, Virtual Reality and/or multimedia VR programming, education and other activities for nursing homes and active-living communities nationwide. Check out this short video of our first project!

REQUIRED PREREQUISITES

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Our objective is to conduct a product/service market study to answer the following questions:
    • How well could we expect Older Adults to embrace VR technology for multi-media experiences to improve quality of life?
    • Is there a profile of Older Adults that is more likely to embrace the technology vs. other parts of the demographic?
    • Content - What VR multimedia content is most attractive for this demographic?
    • Facilitation - This technology requires an interactive client. ┬áWhat is the threshold of interaction and do we need to consider a hired facilitator in order for the technology to be embraced? ┬áWould this be cost-effective?
    • Estimated costs: creating/curating content, facilitating content, hardware/equipment
    • Estimated revenue projections and models: SAS, per session, etc.
    • Who is invoiced? ┬á(nursing home, 55+ community, individual, etc.)
  • Note: We will be visiting a nursing home to conduct in-field research and interviews.
