Description: De-stress in a bioluminescent forest with this interactive virtual reality experience Relax and calm yourself in under five minutes while exploring the wonders of a bioluminescent forest with LUMEN, a self-guided, nonlinear meditation rooted at the intersection of virtual reality and wellness.

LUMEN was created in collaboration with Walter Greenleaf, PhD, of Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab, and Framestore’s VR Studio—and Dr Greenleaf and other Stanford research scientists at the Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital will be evaluating how LUMEN can help children who are undergoing difficult surgical procedures. The experience is just the tip of the interactive iceberg when it comes to the power of harnessing VR to better your life.

Review: When it comes to relaxation apps in VR I have to say that I haven’t come across a bad one yet and LUMEN is no exception. At the end of the day, if used in the right way this app (and mos tother apps in the same genre) will help you destress and get away from it all. But if you are looking for something more…fun, more engaging then this is not for you. Sure, it’s basic and there isn’t a lot to do nor see in this app, but that is kind of the point! If it’s too busy, it is not a relaxing atmosphere. If you are not sure if you will like it or not just wait for a sale. But those who know what to expect should give LUMEN a go even at full-price.
