Our research partners
The Virry team have started working together with researchers at the Centre for Immersive Technologies, University of Leeds to explore how virtual reality can be used to augment educational experiences in the primary school years. Existing research has shown that childhood vocabulary can be predicted by environmental exposure and children from low socioeconomical backgrounds lag behind their wealthier peers in language development. Our aim is to contribute towards democratising learning opportunities and help all children, irrespective of their socioeconomic background, experience informationally-rich environments such as exploring the wonders of the natural world through Virry Safari. We are currently in the process of conducting a feasibility experiment to understand how to best align the Virry VR safari experiences with the UK national curriculum to facilitate educational development.
Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab (VHIL) is currently running a study in which hundreds of experimental participants are experiencing VR scenes via spherical video. The goal of the study is to create a database of VR experiences that induce particular emotions (i.e., high versus low arousal) and to better understand the link between head movement and emotional experiences in VR. Virry VR has provided essential videos that are being used as stimuli in the experiment, given they provide unique experiences that are emotionally charged.
The VHIL have also used Virry VR products in a study conducted at a senior care home, looking at how virtual reality can help improve the quality of life of their senior residents.
