Horror VR mask study mimics suffocation

Using it this manner trains people to handle real-life impacts without putting them at danger.

Firefighters risk their lives to combat blazes. Finding them more training tools may be a good idea.

VR suffocation isn't fascinating, but the technology has practical benefits.

Flight simulators might employ it to impart more realistic forces to high-speed manoeuvres, enabling pilots to feel severe g-forces on their lungs.

The mask works with any VR headset. Oculus Quest 2 and Apple's future VR headset might work.

I adore VR. Immersive experiences are fantastic. Scientists are discovering terrible methods to increase immersion, however.
