Color Space is a VR coloring book to help you relax


Let’s face it: with the COVID-19 pandemic creating chaos, you’re probably looking for something, anything to isolate yourself from the outside world and help you relax. Luckily, you might have an option if you have an Oculus VR headset. Lighthaus has released a Color Space coloring book app for Quest and Rift that lets you bring a dull gray scene to life while you’re inside. The more you color, the more it comes to life with animation and sound. It’s very simple (you only need one button to control everything), but that’s precisely the point — Lighthaus designed applying as a distraction for patients undergoing stressful procedures.

The virtual coloring app costs $10, regardless of which helmet you use. It’s not trivial, but it can be easily justified if you’re determined to calm your nerves and need something other than a meditation session or a video game. If nothing else, it’s a good example of how the immersion of virtual reality can be genuinely useful, not just a nice bonus.
