Leveling the Playing Field in XR

Professional-level, highly physical training and competitions are rife with the potential for injury. With a small mis-step, or an accidental shift, a person can be out for a game, a season, or their entire career—all for the sake of practice. Pre-Game Prep was created to help reduce and mitigate the risk of injury—bodily or concussive—during non-critical training.

The experience with professional football teams taught us that sports arenas weren’t the only Mixed Reality arenas. With an iterative and lean approach, we can re-skin football fields to become buildings, uniforms to become first responder gear, and the end zone to became a secure site. With this approach in mind, we’ll show how you can learn from our efforts to meet your own XR needs, without starting over for every context.
