FOUNDRY 45s – S03E07 – Darryl Wright


Southern Company

Hi, welcome to Foundry 45s. Today we’re excited to have Darryl Wright, senior VR/AR developer at Southern Company. Hey Darryl. Where do you see training organizations getting the most value out of VR?

I think without a doubt, the most value you can get is with training in dangerous and hazardous situations. I mean, let’s face it, you can be in a classroom and watch videos of all of these perfect scenarios, but until you’re out in the field and experience something that goes wrong… that’s where VR can bring that value in. You can have VR create malfunctions and see how the users and employees are actually going to react to different situations, which is difficult to do when you’re taking a test or sitting in a classroom.
