We came up with the idea after realizing it was harder for our adult selves to be lost in our imagination. This was different from when we were younger we played make-believe or pretended, we were doing something amazing. After trying on different Virtual Reality headsets, we realized this technology can help reclaim that suspension of disbelief.
It was a way to explore worlds which only existed in our imagination.
