    But before we get into that, below is the answer to a question that you may or may not be asking in your head, “what is VR anyway?”
    VR stands for virtual reality. It’s the use of computer technology to create simulated environments!
    People can utilise VR technology to experience activities that would normally come with a lot of danger, including extreme rollercoasters, skydiving, deep sea diving and more!
    There are also very realistic games that allow players to journey across different worlds!
    Now that that’s out of the way, below are a few reasons why gaming is good for you and your little ones!
    – Games improve your child’s cognitive abilities.
    – Playing games improves your children’s reflexes and muscle memory
    – Gaming can help control cravings
    – Gaming helps people cope with stress better

    If that sounds good, then you should visit VR Club NZ!
