Is VR just for young people?

Interestingly, we found by the third VR experience, regardless of age, all groups had gained the same amount of competency in using VR. Younger generations may be faster to initially pick up the coordination and techniques required due to being exposed to gaming consoles and similar technology at a younger age but longer-term, age was no barrier to successful VR training.

How long should I allow for a Next World training experience?

The experiences themselves take 20-25min to complete, from adjusting to the headset, to cleaning afterwards  It is recommended to allow 45min for the full process and experience.

How many experiences do I get in a month’s subscription?

The subscription price includes unlimited use. Based on the 45min per training recommendation, with a single headset typically you’d be able to conduct up to 8-10 experiences in a single day. That’s an opportunity for nearly 300 training experiences per month.
