create cutting-edge vr experiments

WorldViz is the global leader in providing researchers with innovative VR solutions for academic research in social psychology, spatial cognition, perception, and countless other fields. Our technology enables groundbreaking experimental setups that would be impossible in the real world, while guaranteeing high experimental control and ecological validity. Check out some of the 80 papers published last year that used WorldViz VR technology for academic research.

Increase experimental realism without compromising control

  • Create controlled and repeatable experimental setups.
  • Manipulate the world in ways normally impossible or prohibitively expensive.
  • Integrate physiological data and biofeedback while automating analysis.
  • Perform research with a high degree of ecological validity.
  • Provide compelling sense of personal, social and environmental “presence” for subjects.

"WorldViz has helped me and my colleagues launch behavioral research into a new era." 
- Jeremy Bailenson, PhD, Virtual Human Interaction Lab
