Areas

Healium XR

Product development

Psychological stress, such as burnout and depression are among the second most frequent causes of illness in Germany. It’s more prominent today than it was Twenty years ago. The people affected by this illness are retiring sooner, and this has an impact on production downtime costs. This is where the Healium product development comes in. In just four minutes, Healium soothes brain stress. Delivered via a VR application, these story-driven, brain-guided experiences work with many popular VR glasses.

VR-Journalismus

Realization

VR enables stories to be more immersive. With this new medium, journalists are able to better engage their audience by taking them to places that are normally inaccessible. This allows for audiences to be placed directly into other people’s lives to include time and roles. What’s the result? Oftentimes, there is a change in empathy. For journalists, it not only changes the narratives and production processes, but it opens up a new relationship with the user. The practical book “VR Journalism” explains how VR journalism works, to include the technical know-how and practical skills that journalists should have at their disposal. VR journalists are given more insight into their work and provided with checklists and examples to further illustrate the implementation of VR stories.

Innovation

Innovation

Most US innovators were born in Europe. As such, the US market has been overtaking German-speaking Europe in future areas of technology. One reason for this has been the lack of cooperation between each other. The aim of Viewpoint is to allow for professionals from different industries to collaborate, grow, and learn from each other. This allows for information and ideas to flow freely, which helps multiply the speed of innovation. If you feel the same, we’d like you to join our rapidly growing network of professionals by becoming a member of Viewpoint. We look forward to seeing you!
