Live Streaming Platform BCAST Launches "I Can FLY" Virtual Reality Initiative to Bring Veterans with Physical Disabilities - in Experience - Live Streaming Video

Virtual reality or virtual realities (VR), also known as immersive multimedia or computer simulated reality, is defined as computer technology that replicates an environment, real or imagined, and simulates a user's physical presence and environment to allow for user interaction. Virtual realities artificially create sensory experience, which can include sight, touch, hearing, and smell. The immersive environment can be similar to the real world in order to create lifelike experiences.

Social media live streaming platform BCAST announced today its launch of the "I Can Fly" initiative designed to use virtual reality to bring real life live Broadcast experiences to veterans with physical disabilities.

Mike Hodge-BCAST CEO explains:

"The technology now exists for us to enable veterans with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy 360 degree virtual reality live broadcasts that come as close to actually being immersed in the experience as is possible. Imagine an immobile disabled Veteran using a VR headset and BCAST being able to view live motorcycle racing, skiing, sky diving, mountain climbing, etc as if they were there. We intend to reach out across America and challenge everyone to help us generate exciting live streaming content in every subject imaginable using next generation 360 cameras. Hopefully this will provide our VETs with disabilities in some small way a quality of life improvement."

BCAST will be partnering with a number of VR headset/camera manufacturers/ WebVR and action sports groups in an effort to work with our veterans to maximize the opportunity for them to enjoy this new technology.

The BCAST Platform is free of charge to use.
