NVIDIA Making Impossible Wishes Come True with Virtual Reality

Zayden Wright knows how to dream big. When the Georgia chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation asked the seven year old what he wanted most in the entire world, he was ready with a reply. He wished he could blast off to outer space and visit Saturn in a red rocket ship. Frankly, he’s earned it. When only two days old, Zayden was diagnosed with a congenital heart disease. He’s since endured nearly 40 echocardiograms, six heart catheterizations and four open heart surgeries. It was up to the volunteers of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which each year grants the wishes of thousands of children with life-threatening medical conditions, and its partners to make it happen. Thanks to the power of virtual reality, a seemingly impossible wish became possible.
