VR World Record

A man named Jack McNee has broken the Guinness world record for the longest consecutive time immersed in VR. He spent over 36 hours in Google’s Tilt Brush drawing application. This can be very straining on your eyes, so do not try this at home! Remember to use the 20-20-20 rule; take a break every 20 minutes to look at something at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds to avoid unhealthy eye strain in VR. #virtualreality #VR #google #tiltbrush #guinnessbookofworldrecords #immersion #immerseyourself #welcometothefuture

Preparing Medical Students in VR

VR/AR technology is transforming how medical professionals prepare for real-world situations in the operating room. Imagine confronting intense surgeries and making life or death decisions, without the virtual patient being at actual risk. With repeated performances in VR, medical professionals are afforded multiple opportunities to get it right, so that when a real surgery does occur, the correct procedure becomes embedded in their muscle memory. Crosswater has been developing advanced medical VR curriculum content for Universities coast to coast!
