Starlight Children’s Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of our newest program: Starlight Xperience.
Starlight Xperience is a groundbreaking, new program that will radically transform the hospital experience for kids by transporting them out of the hospital to anywhere in the world — or the galaxy — they dream to go through fantastic virtual reality experiences that will entertain, educate and inspire. It’s an easy-to-use and state-of-the-art hospital-ready virtual reality (VR) headset with the latest all-in-one hardware from Lenovo. The headset is preloaded with age-appropriate, dynamic content geared toward entertainment and distraction for hospitalized kids such as virtual snowball fights, immersive field trips to exotic locations, fun video games, and more.
We are officially launching this program later this fall, but are doing a soft launch in July so we can gain valuable insight and feedback from select hospital partners and direct users of the program. Each Starlight Xperience kit includes:
- A Starlight customized Lenovo Mirage Solo headset and controller
- 20+ preloaded VR experiences
- Headset mounted, wipeable VR headphones
- A carrying case and charging cables
As with all our programs, Starlight Xperience will be provided to our hospital partners at no cost.
