Behind the Technology
Virtual reality simulations improve our abilities in a variety of ways
How VR Works
A brief glimpse into the science that drives the teambuildingvr program.
Virtual reality creates presence, a psychological connection between the virtual world and your mind.
When introduced to a virtual environment, the brain uses visual, audio, and movement queues to create a sense of connection or “presence” to your surroundings
Self-identification with the VR world creates ownership of the experience and a fidelity to the computer generated self.
Through presence and the embodiment of the experience, virtual reality participants interpret virtual situations as real life and are capable of using this as a groundwork for self improvement, skill building, and improved team dynamics.

“[Virtual reality] connects humans to other humans in a profound way I’ve never before seen in any other form of media, and it can change people’s perception of each other. “That is why I think virtual reality has the potential to actually change the world.”
Chris Milk, Influential Producer/TED Talk
“The medical uses are pretty amazing. We’re seeing the perfect confluence. Anything you can do to train people more quickly, effectively, and cheaply is a boon to the healthcare industry. VR is a rapidly evolving technology that solves a lot of problems here.”

Key Team Building Outcomes
The following are team building skills that our program focuses deliberately on improving
Research shows that good communication, mixed with strong organizational support, competence among the group leaders and clear group objectives can lead to the highest level of success in teams. Among those factors, good communication has shown to be the most important for success.
“When people do things they weren’t even sure they were capable of, I think it comes back to connection. Connection with teammates. Connection with organization. Feeling like they belong in the environment. I think it’s a human need – the need to feel connected. ”
