Chimera: How Virtual Reality Enhances Remote Learning

For #remote learning, what makes Pagoni VR's Chimera better than #videocalls? 🤔

1. Students are in a distraction-free #VirtualReality environment.
2. Learners feel like they are together, not behind a flat-screen.
3. Educators do not need to modify their teaching methods.
4. These #VR spaces can be customized for educator needs.
5. Spatial audio helps learners recognize who's talking, so people don't all talk at once.

This latest Voice of America piece highlights the distinct #learning advantages of Pagoni VR's Chimera. Those interested in optimizing their #HigherEd or #RemoteWork setup can contact Jimmy Giliberti, the GM of Glimpse Group subsidiary Pagoni VR.

More offices and schools are continuing their #remote plans for the fall. As we all make adjustments, Voice of America spoke to Glimpse Group subsidiary Pagoni VR about their product Chimera and how it enhances the #RemoteLife for students and employees.

With a mix of immersive video and #VirtualReality, Chimera helps virtual attendees feel like they're in a shared environment with a real instructor. Temple University recently used Chimera for a series of remote MBA courses and as one student said, Chimera helped him feel "fully focused on a great learning environment." 🧠

Chimera presents real-time remote solutions for school, work, and entertainment.

How can #VirtualReality enhance #RemoteLearning? 🧠 With Pagoni VR's Chimera, these Temple University students safely shared a virtual environment while receiving live instruction from their professor.

“When someone is speaking on #videoconferencing platforms, everyone usually looks at the image of the person who is talking on the monitor and not the camera, so, for the person who’s speaking, it’s hard to tell if anyone is paying attention to them. But on #VR, you feel like you’re on stage, and that makes a difference.” - Bora Ozkan, Ph.D.

Dining is going digital. 🍴As more people order from home, QReal helps eaters visualize and pick their dishes. Panera Bread, Magnolia Bakery, and Subway trust QReal's #AR food models. This Glimpse Group subsidiary company is determined to expand to #Asia.

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University developed a #haptics device to simulate the feeling of obstacles of heavy objects.

"Elements such as walls, furniture, and virtual characters are key to building immersive virtual worlds" - Chris Harrison, assistant professor in CMU's Human-Computer Interaction Institute.

While the device consumes a lot of power, this #prototype brings us one step closer to having #VR experiences that mirror that of real-life.

Facebook’s Oculus Is Developing a New Quest VR Headset

Facebook is rumored to release a smaller, more powerful Quest. The new model was originally scheduled to launch at the end of this year, but the Coronavirus pandemic could delay shipments of the updated #VirtualReality headset until 2021.

Bloomberg LP reports, "The updated refresh rate of the new Quest VR headset is at least 90Hz, up from the current model’s 60Hz for movies or 72Hz for most VR tasks, making video and games appear smoother."

Oculus is also redesigning its controllers. If Facebook is able to produce enough supply to meet demand, these device updates will be beneficial for #VR's mass adoption. VR's usage has increased over the past two months. As more people stay at home, a larger portion of the population is understanding how immersive technologies will shape the future of work, education, and entertainment.

Doctors and nurses are using VR to learn skills to treat coronavirus patients

"As hospitals worldwide face severe shortages of health professionals, people are being called off the sidelines to help COVID-19 patients — even those with little to no experience in treating infectious diseases."

During these unprecedented times, it's extremely important for medical professionals and other essential workers to have access to safe training procedures. The power of #VR lies within its ability to put people in situations that would otherwise be unsafe or impossible to practice in real life.

When compared to traditional methods, Adept Reality, our corporate #training subsidiary, and Immersive Health Group, our #healthcare subsidiary, found immersive learning can speed up the #learning process, boost accuracy, and increase retention.

We're proud immersive technologies are making a difference. #StaySafe

As hospitals worldwide face severe shortages of health professionals, people are being called off the sidelines to help COVID-19 patients — even those with little to no experience in treating infectious diseases.
