As pioneers in the VR industry, we’ve been overcoming the impossible to produce what can only be described as magic. With over two decades of proven industry experience in virtual reality, WorldViz provides guidance, leadership, and talent to those using the dynamic virtual reality technology.

We first developed virtual reality technologies in the early 1990s along with psychologist and VR expert Jack Loomis to conduct research in human perception and behavior at MIT and the University of California. The technology that was developed in those labs contributed to some of the first fully-functional interactive VR systems in the world. In 2002, as industry and academic interest in VR technology intensified and the components began to rapidly evolve, we founded WorldViz.

The company quickly advanced to industry trailblazer as the interactive HMD-based VR systems we developed for various industry verticals earned a best-in-class reputation. For the following 13 years, we’ve been delivering VR solutions and guidance to researchers, trainers, teachers, government leaders, and business teams in the United States and around the globe. A recent focus of ours has been on creating VR creation and collaboration tools that are accessible to non-technical users.

Today, we take pride in being the world leader in innovative, enterprise-level VR solutions and interactive visualizations that meet your needs, whatever your industry and goals.

Vizard is a development environment for scientific grade VR. It allows researchers and innovators to build precise and complex simulations that connect to VR headsets, Multi-Projection Systems, head/hand trackers, motion capture systems, and specialty devices such as eye trackers, haptic feedback, and biophysiological sensors.
