A few weeks ago I got the chance to attend a lunch and learn event sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association and Little Tech Girl and I was not disappointed. I got to check out the latest tech products that are perfect for gift giving and learn about how tech has changed how we do things. I also got to dine on a fabulous lunch at Formento’s Restaurant.

This device is probably what I was most excited about because it is unlike anything I have ever heard of. It is the world’s first standalone VR headset – meaning no PC, phone, cables or external sensors are required! It is equipped with WorldSense technology meaning users can duck, dodge, lean and move in ways to enhance the virtual reality experience. It has a powerful processor, high-resolution low-latency display and built-in battery packed in an ergonomic design to wear. We have tried other VR headsets and they were a pain because we had to take the cases off our phones and put them in a headset then try to connect via bluetooth. I tried out this handset and was super impressed! I got to bring one home and can’t wait to try out everything it can do!

So in the video I did, I had to heal a tree and make it grow. I was definitely skeptic about it working! You have to unwind your thoughts and think happy things and the tree heals.

It really worked and reminded me to just breathe and not let things bother me!
