When you consider traditional team building requirements (venue selection and booking, searching for props, coming up with games, etc.), virtual reality team building activities don’t require much.
The headset can be standalone (untethered to any device) or connected to a PC or console. It should come with VR controllers that people can use to interact with the VR environment. Additionally, your headset may have special sensors that track your body’s movements in space, making for a more immersive experience.
If you want better performance and more powerful graphics, you might need to sacrifice the freedom of movement for a professional-grade tethered headset such as the VIVE Pro.
If you’d rather that your team can move around without being connected to a computer or console, then a standalone headset such as the Oculus Quest 2 is a good option.
For tethered headsets, you need something to connect them to. This something should be a powerful PC that can run VR applications or a gaming console such as a PlayStation. The PC should have a top-of-the-class graphic card and CPU to run VR team-building games smoothly.
Standalone headsets do not require any computer or device to be attached to – they already come with accessible platforms where you can browse the internet, watch movies, or play the VR applications you have installed.
Lastly, you need to choose the activity or game your team will participate in. There are dozens of published games and VR apps that will fit your needs out there. However, if you want something unique that you can’t find anywhere, you can always commission a software company to develop a VR game specifically for your business and your teams.
