The focus should be on seniors but look around, young persons are becoming more involved with social media, and yet more lonely. Let’s look at some facts.
According to the Cigna U.S. Loneliness Index;
“three out of every five adults, or 61%, report that they sometimes or always feel lonely”,
“workers aged 18–22, 73% report sometimes or always feeling alone, up from 69% a year ago,”
‘there is a greater feeling of loneliness among people who use social media more frequently”, the study found.
The above poses us with two problems; how to alleviate loneliness among young ones, and how to provide assistance and company for seniors. But with a problem comes a solution, which was mentioned earlier to be virtual reality. With the aid of virtual assistants, young people can now afford a companion, while seniors, an assistant and company. Fortunately, an innovation by OVR provides this and more- OVR LIVE.
OVR LIVE is a platform that allows both young and seniors to create 3D customizable Avatars that can be interacted with in real time, acting as both a virtual friend, companion, and an assistant. OVR Avatar is equipped with virtual reality + Artificial intelligence embedded to act as a readily-available companion for young ones, and assistance for seniors helping them go through this stage of their lives with ease.
