It seems that VR may be the un­wit­ting foun­da­tion for some ad­vanced med­i­cal tools. Fol­low­ing the re­lease of a re­search pa­per late last year that un­cov­ered an in­hibitive ef­fect of flash­ing lights on the pro­gres­sion of Alzheimer’s dis­ease in mice, a young red­di­tor pleaded with the on­line com­mu­nity for an anal­o­gous hu­man so­lu­tion. In re­sponse to this re­quest, Sa­muel Sekandagu, a de­vel­oper from the Vive soft­ware stu­dio Over­flow Games, cre­ated and up­loaded to GitHub, a work­ing open-source soft­ware pro­to­type for the ex­per­i­men­tal ther­apy.
