Fancy a 3-month subscription to the Harvard Business Review?

Laura Helm / about 1 month ago

We’ve been working on an exciting project with Harvard Business Publishing. We’d love to invite you to test one (or more) of the 3 XR experiences we have created and let us know what you think. The experiences are centered around Leadership and exploring how immersive learning can help you be a better Leader.

We are also offering a 3-month free trial to the Harvard Business Review ( digital only) as a thank you. All you need to do is sign up to at least one of the links below, let us know when that’s complete and we will do the rest.

There are two AR experiences and 1 VR experience:

  1. VR Focus
    Meta Quest 2 Headset required
    Time commitment is 10 mins per day for 14 days.
    US Only

    2. Air Notes
    Time Commitment - 5 mins each day for a 2-week period
    Worldwide

    3. God Mode
    Time commitment  - one off experience lasting 15-20 mins
    Worldwide

You can find more information about each prototype below as well as information on how to sign up to become a tester.

1. VR FOCUS

As you know, it’s one thing to read a book or article about how to be a more focused leader—it’s another to become naturally focused and motivated through an immersive experience. Imagine you could

  1. Explore guided meditations along a calming journey
  2. Complete challenges designed to help improve your focus, productivity, and mindset
  3. Take away research-backed tips you can apply to your workday

We have a special invitation for all you VR (virtual reality) fans out there. If you love exploring emerging technologies and are curious what HBR has to do with VR, keep reading. We are excited to bring beta testers on board (like you!) to get a sneak peek of our “HBR VR Focus” beta virtual reality experience. Our virtual reality app, designed for the Oculus Meta Quest 2, uses guided meditation and mini-games to help you calm your mind, train your attention, and break out of creative ruts.
