Samsung's Bedtime VR Stories Puts a High-Tech Twist on Storytelling

Samsung recently debuted a new app called Bedtime VR Stories that puts a high-tech twist on the bedtime storytelling tradition. While it is hard to replace real storytelling with technology, the new app provides a clever way for parents to continue the tradition even when they can't be at home.

The Bedtime VR Stories app is a virtual experience aimed at children. To use the app, parents and children need to don individual Samsung VR headsets and download the accompanying application. The app then creates an immersive story environment that allows parents and children to virtually interact with one another. The idea is to help parents continue bedtime traditions even when they can't physically be at home.

While the app is still being developed, it does demonstrate the power of VR technology to help users share experiences even when they are far apart.
