through virtual reality.
In order for us to test our hypothesis on this product conversion of both fun and science, we had to study, understand, and isolate the variables that would provide benefits to the user while keeping the experience both fun and engaging.
What we did:
Met weekly with the client to tease out what was essential and what were artifacts of legacy science (the way it was done before)
Made sure the device and experience would work when used by athletes in athletic departments, not computer labs
Made an Oculus Go product that could easily be used in gyms and athletic spaces
Designed 5 different tests that measure the athlete’s key mental abilities, along with a training game designed to further improve those mental abilities
Partnered with a third party to pass performance data using AWS as an administrative dashboard for both coaches and trainers
“We had a unique product with numerous idiosyncratic features.
FreeRange XR seemed to understand what to build with little instruction needed from us.”
