VR is Memorable

Recent research suggests that Immersive VR/360 content is more memorable than traditional video.

People are more likely to remember things that they experience as opposed to things they only observe. VR is the powerful medium that is able to transition the viewer from observing to experiencing.

This quality is what makes VR/360 such an effective tool in training and education.

VR Endorsement from Pixar’s Founder

“I think the application of VR in education is one of the greatest steps in years,” said Loren Carpenter the co-founder of Disney Pixar.

He worked with George Lucas on Star Wars, co-founded one of the most successful animation studios in the world, and won an Oscar for his work in discovering the value of computer graphics in motion pictures.

Now, he sees value in VR & AR’s potential role in educating future generations.

VR for Pain Management

The use of Immersive VR/360 content for pain management in hospitals is one of the most innovative & valuable functions that this revolutionary media platform offers.

It works by distracting patients during their routine, pain-inducing procedures by simply immersing them in VR/360 experiences.

Not only does this reduce pain and discomfort, it offers us an alternative, drug-free, pain-management method which may help reduce prescription drug dependence.
