Today, virtual reality is established as a powerful research tool allowing for unprecedented experimental control within fully immersive stimuli. It presents innovative avenues for exploring human perception and behavior, and it has been used to successfully study topics ranging from basic science to applied areas such as rehabilitation, healthcare, and more.

The technology is advancing rapidly, with the emergence of new VR hardware platforms, such as Oculus Quest, and developments of new VR software tools, such as the WorldViz Vizard plugin for eye tracking, "SightLab VR", and other research-grade VR solutions such as the WorldViz virtual simulation room “VizMove Prism”  and the patented portable VR system for professionals “VizBox”. 

WorldViz has been supporting the research community since 2002 by providing end-to-end VR research solutions including software and hardware. The company’s VR solutions for academic research offer tools to create and conduct complex VR-based experiments. WorldViz systems are powered by Vizard, which enables researchers of any background to rapidly develop their own virtual environments and author complex interactions between environment, devices, and subjects.
