‘“We have created very high impact scenarios, such as typical domestic scenes like being in a kitchen or bathroom,” James Bonner, technical director at Opaque, said in a press release. “We then modulate certain parameters of the users experience such as change perceptual effects, glaucoma cataracts and visual deterioration.” “By using entertainment and gaming technology – we have created a virtual reality so that carers can experience first-hand what it’s like to suffer from dementia, and the challenges that some face every day – but we take for granted,” Bonner added.’
