The same old scenery during lockdown was getting me down. What could I do?
Virtual Reality during Lockdown
I've been isolated in the house, like so many others, during this Covid-19 lockdown. Besides the walls of the house, I also see a view from the walking path in the neighborhood, but eventually habituation takes over and I hardly notice it. I needed additional scenic views, but we've not been able to do so.
For several years, I've been hearing about Virtual Reality devices. Until now, I didn't have the need for them. I bought an entry-level device, Oculus Go, from NewEgg, to investigate.
YouTube gave me some beginner's tips, esp. setup. I don't expect to use the viewer for hours at a time. Also, I didn't tie my logon to FaceBook, while I'm learning.

All in all, VR provides an escape when lockdown has deadened my senses.
