Virtual reality has been referred to as the “ultimate empathy machine” since it allows users to experience any situation from any point of view. Studies have shown that AR/VR can shift a user’s attitudes and feelings, increasing both self-confidence and compassion for others. The immersive nature of virtual reality is what makes for such a powerful experience, but only if the AR/VR device works as intended. Effective development and QA testing helps ensure display and performance quality.
