From marketing to surgical training, VR expands workflows, improves communication, and simulates risk-free, low-cost training. For years, Boeing Starliner has used VR to prepare astronauts for spaceflight. Since offering VR based diagrams to electrical technicians, Boeing has cited a 40% improvement
in company productivity.
Research by Benjamin Schöne published in Current Psychology indicates that VR training correlates to an improvement in memory retention
. A study with Yale University found surgeons that trained in VR performed operations 29% faster
with mean errors six times less likely. It's no surprise VR has taken off. In 2021 Stanford University launched its first class fully taught through VR.
