Virtual reality

6x spike in investment
6x increase in global spending on VR is predicted between 2020 and 2024

Virtual Reality (VR) uses visors, Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) and hand-held devices like smartphones and tablets to simulate realistic or conceptual environments. It is a leap from seeing and hearing, towards living and experiencing. 

VR experiences can be based in a range of environments like buildings or cities in the present day, ancient or futuristic civilizations, extraterrestrial locations or fictional virtual worlds. These environments can be shared with others to create a communal space, and as such are effective for immersive education, virtual tours, training, collaboration or pure entertainment.

Extended realities (XR) is the umbrella term of augmented reality, virtual reality, 360 and 3D.

Soft skills training

Using VR, companies can train their employees to improve their skills in an impactful way. Imagine an experiential learning environment that uses multisensory teaching techniques to match the different ways we learn. By virtually putting themselves in the shoes of others employees can build stronger interpersonal relationships and learn about building empathy, and understand diversity and inclusion. Read more…

Employee orientation

It is an effective, immersive means for companies to welcome employees through engaging and realistic VR-powered modules to introduce office spaces and new cities, with key information overlaid onto the physical surroundings. It is a solution that is detailed, personal and scalable, and ensures the employees have a positive start, especially those relocating to a new region. Read more…

Virtual tour

Virtual tours can bring locations to life and provide an immersive experience that offers the feeling of going on a journey through real or conceptual environments. They have a versatile potential to enhance business, act as efficient route maps or guides and can even be used in immersive education. Think remote viewings of hotels in exotic destinations, maps of large event venues or being present and watching migrations on the Serengeti. Read more…
