DRIVR-X: Choose Your Reality

vr-headset

Manitoba Public Insurance is inviting young drivers to get behind the wheel in virtual reality (VR). Through the use of leading edge VR technology, DRIVR-X allows participants to explore a three-dimensional environment in a seemingly real and physical way.

 

Research shows that young drivers are consistently over-represented in collisions related to distracted driving, impaired driving and speeding. DRIVR-X tackles these issues by giving drivers perspective, greater empathy and better understanding of how their choices have consequences.

 

Life is about choices. The DRIVR-X virtual reality experience demonstrates the power of those choices in a fun, interactive story that is driven by you. With multiple story lines and outcomes, you decide what happens next.
