During this trying adventure, Jak indeed hopes discover ways to stay healthy and productive during prolonged use of virtual reality headsets. Indeed, he is convinced that virtual and augmented reality will replace smartphones by 2038 and believes that it is important to improve their comfort of use in view of this democratization.
In order to compare the effects of different headphones, Jak Wilmot will be changing aircraft regularly during this week. As a precaution, he allows himself to take 30 seconds each time he changes his helmet to eat, sleep, stretch or wash. The room he is in has no windows, which will allow him to maintain his circadian cycle by simulating day / night cycles.
The experiment started on February 20, 2019, and will end on February 27, 2019. To watch Jaw Wilmot live while he stays in VR, go to his official website at this address and choose one of the streaming platforms offered.
