David Cleverdon – 360 Immersive

by Rick August 4, 2019 360, VR

ABOUT: I have been in the production marketing industry since the mid-80s. This includes video production, motion graphics, web development, app development, training, and trade show support. I have always believed technology could bring something new to our clients and built my first website in 1994. Around the same time, I developed flash-based CD-ROM presentations that trained Hewlett-Packard employees within HP’s printer and mass storage divisions. When VR became commercially available in December 2014, I felt it was a real opportunity to look at a new form of storytelling that could immerse somebody in a specific message or idea. Movies, TV, training presentation (generally supported by PowerPoint): these are all passive experiences…and virtual reality allowed us to engage a viewer in an active immersive experience. To me it was a real game changer.

Ford: The Psychology of Performance

Ford: The Psychology of Performance

The Psychology of Performance

The Psychology of Performance is a collaborative research project between UNIT9, King’s College London and Ford Performance, investigating the effects of high-performance race car driving on the brain. The hypothesis is that by understanding professional race car drivers’ mental capacity, we can learn how to better perform in other challenging real life situations. And by training ourselves to adopt such a high-performance mindset, we can better cope.

So working with Ford Performance – the motorsport branch of the US car maker – UNIT9 and and King’s College London teamed up with OATH and Mindshare to develop a top-of-the-range EEG brain scanner to carry out an experimental study.
