The power of VR

"A picture paints a thousand words... but an interactive VR simulation paints millions"




“The area of the human cerebral cortex developed to the processing of visual inputs is in order of magnitude greater than that devoted to text and speech input. We dream visually, we read visually. Therefore, by using VR to show concepts and knowledge in a visual and effective way, we can dramatically enhance the level of understanding of any subject.”

We use VR to communicate ideas and concepts, to help address the urgent training needs of our least developed as well as industrial communities.

What: We focus on the development of interactive, visual CONTENT- another name for Virtual Reality (VR).
Why: VR is both content as well as context rich – making it a powerful way to communicate a concept, to test an idea or to show others what you are thinking…
How:We tap the power of VR to develop a wide range of visually interactive training material; to market goods and to develop memorable historic experiences. We are also using VR in a globally unique way - by taking a First-World technology and using it to benefit our poorer communities. VR is a powerful way to overcome language and literacy barriers in learning.

 Vision is also our primary sense . We also know that our brains and its associated cognitive systems respond very effectively to visual stimuli to build visual mental maps – but the ability of our brains to process text is nowhere near as developed.
