Galactig launches first ever Welsh language VR app

Experience dementia with ground-breaking VR on Oculus.

A virtual reality (VR) experience – in English and Welsh – which allows users to understand how it feels to be living with dementia Dementia First Hand (Yn Fy Nwylo I) is available now for free in the Oculus Rift Store.

Scenarios available in the app include every-day tasks around the home, such as making a cup of tea in the kitchen and looking for your car keys; a voice through the headset speaks to you in the same way a person with dementia may think e.g. telling you to put an electric kettle on the hob, in order to demonstrate the confusion dementia patients feel.

This is a groundbreaking use of VR technology to teach soft skills in Welsh and English. We have created an experience which allows you to interact with everyday objects using virtual hands which aid users in fully immersing themselves in the narrative.
