Virtual waiting room

​For those who hate waiting rooms, the elevator type music and year old magazines, ZocDoc, an online medical care scheduling service, has found a solution in virtual reality.

Designed for patients waiting for medical appointments, the headsets were placed in doctor’s waiting rooms to transport patients out of the room and into a yoga retreat, a horse pasture, a beautiful sunset or a lily pond.

According to the video, not only did the VR headsets provide patients with entertainment, it calmed their nerves before seeing the doctor.

For those who don’t need to visit the doctor but still fancy a day off work, ZocDoc also created a ‘sick day excuse generator’, for the perfect note to send to the boss.
