Adjusting Life To Suit

Wouldn’t it be great if you could turn the volume down on the irritating loudmouth at the next table? Or change the acid pink of that girl’s dress to a nice calming beige? Or dissipate the crowds at the mall at the flick of a switch?

Imagine how much calmer you would feel if it wasn’t for the world around you.

For autistic people, these intrusions from the outside world can be particularly painful.

Simple noises become jarring explosions. Lurid colours burn the eye. Crowds become walls closing in around you. Even the low-level hum of a fluorescent bulb can be an inescapable torture.

Fortunately, in a virtual world, these things can be changed.

In our VR game developed for autistic people, for example, we’ve put a great deal of thought into ways of customising your surroundings. Colour, light, environment can all be tailored to your particular sensitivities.

So you can take the welcoming world that we have created and fine tune it so that it suits you perfectly. Allowing you to completely immerse yourself in the world we have created, and enjoy the games and challenges that we have designed with you in mind.

Done properly, VR offers the perfect playground away from the real world. Here, you can be who you want to be in a world you can trust, because it was created for you by the person who knows you best.
