Last month, we wrote about making your very own emergency preparedness kit. For September, we’re keeping with the DIY trend by sharing some fun activities that you can try out at home. Enjoy reading today’s post about virtual reality.

Virtual reality is a trending technology all across the country. From companies designing their own in-home systems to game console accessories like Playstation VR, there are endless options available for you to experience the world of virtual reality (even on your phone). Did you watch the movie Ready Player One yet? It released back in March and really highlights the possibilities of virtual reality.

Instead of spending hundreds—if not thousands—of dollars on a virtual reality system, why not make your own? Enjoy rock climbing on the other side of the world, skydiving, and deep sea fishing—all without leaving your apartment in Kissimmee, Florida. Read on to find out how you can make your own pair of virtual reality glasses in your Laguna Place apartment.

You’ll need:

1. Two 45mm biconvex lenses

2. Four strips of VELCRO

3. A Cardboard shoe box

4. Scissors

5. Glue stick

Virtual reality is becoming more and more popular, and each year it’s getting better. With new and improved technology, better graphics, and more affordable solutions, it’s a great time to take advantage and enjoy this ground-breaking experience. Virtual reality puts us inside of an environment—an experience—that seems so real it’s as though we are actually there. Whether you’re using it for entertainment purposes or training for a new job, it looks like we’ll be seeing this technology around a lot more often and for years to come.
