WORKING DURING COVID-19: OUR EXPERIENCE AND XR SAFETY UPDATE

COVID-19 UPDATE.

On Mondays we have tea during videocalls and on Fridays we have movie catch-ups in VR. Apart from that, for us it’s been business as usual.

Adapting to the pandemic restrictions and new ways of life have been a challenge for everyone, but we are glad to say working on our projects and with our clients throughout this time kept us motivated on our mission. 

This is the perfect time to mention our gratitude to Innovate UK for awarding us their Business Continuity Grant in response to COVID-19. You can read about it here. 

LET'S DEBUNK A MYTH: XR EXPERIENCES AND HYGIENE.

VR headsets can be and should be sanitised. Most companies use solutions such as Cleanbox, a device that uses UVC light to decontaminate the headsets while causing no damage to the hardware itself. Other options include replacements with waterproof face pads so that headsets can be cleaned and disinfected to guarantee users’ safety and hygiene. Manufacturers like Pico have designed their new headsets to be more hygienic by introducing a foam mask that is easier to clean and disinfect for a safe experience.

Offering great VR training not only means delivering the training but also explaining sanitisation choices noted above to the organisations and users involved in the experience. It is essential to offer risk assessments and evaluations to determine which of the current disinfecting methods are the best suited for the particular training session.
