Starlight Children’s Foundation is pleased to introduce its newest initiative, Starlight Xperience, a groundbreaking new technology program that offers millions of seriously ill children a fun and exciting way to explore the world and beyond through the magic of virtual reality.
Built for the Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream, Starlight Xperience features a state-of-the-the-art and hospital-ready headset that comes preloaded with age-appropriate, dynamic content geared toward entertainment and distraction for hospitalized kids. Starlight Xperience was created in collaboration with Founding Sponsor, Star Wars: Force for Change, the charitable initiative from Lucasfilm and the Walt Disney Company that harnesses the power of Star Wars to empower and improve the lives of children around the world.
Thanks to funding provided by The Walt Disney Company, Niagara Cares and charitable donations from grassroots donors, Starlight Xperience will be provided at no cost to Starlight’s network of more than 800 children’s hospitals and other health care facilities across the US.
