USA – Learning how to drive is a rite of passage and sometimes, it begins with a few bumps. One program is trying to minimize real-world damage by putting new drivers into the VR world first. Aceable, an online school for driving designed around teens, is now integrating virtual reality content into its courses to make them more immersive.The content is available on their iOS and Android apps. Aceable, which primarily targets teenage beginners, will use VR to help teens practice the concepts they learn through more teaching traditional methods.
Aceable has made three 360 videos available on YouTube. These videos demonstrate right-of-way situations, with the viewer behind the wheel. Riding shotgun is Aceable’s avatar, a friendly-looking robot. Its meme-filled lessons are designed to be funny, quick and information-rich, striking the balance required to keep the attention of its young students. The programs come with an unlimited number of practice tests.
