In a report titled "Total Recall", Discovery Channel has illustrated today the results of our experiment on VR and memory retention, published in a scientific paper on the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics. Our experiment has shown that using a virtual reality headset to experience risky situations as immersive 3D games improves memory retention of passenger safety instructions. The Discovery Channel report has also showed the Oculus Rift version of the risk experience we have just released.
Released for the Oculus Rift and downloadable from Oculus Share, the Emerging Water Landing VR (see video) app allows users to live an immersive experience of an airliner water landing and evacuation. Players can interactively try possible right or wrong passenger's actions and see their effects simulated.
