What if we could

the way we

We help improve the way people interact through the power of immersive virtual reality and award-winning neuroscientific research.

Immersive Virtual Reality

has been shown to affect behavioural change and promote empathy towards others.

We facilitate

the process of healing through highly interactive, transformative experiences

Through the power of Embodiment

Embodiment is where an illusion is created that tricks the brain into thinking its virtual body is real. We then change the virtual body, and create psychological or physical change.

“There is some level of the brain that doesn’t distinguish between reality and virtual reality. A typical example is, you see a precipice and you jump back and your heart starts racing. You react very fast because it’s the safe thing for the brain to do. All your autonomic system starts functioning, you get a very strong level of arousal, then you go, ‘I know it’s not real’. But it doesn’t matter, because you still can’t step forward near that precipice."
