S.P.I.K.E.S. Sim

S.P.I.K.E.S. Sim

Currently in development at the Interactive Deep Dive in Austin, Texas. Building off of current standardized patient training programs, this system uses a live performer trained to react moment by moment to a trainee's actions as they attempt to deliver difficult news, like the death of a family member. 

This project is currently being developed as a live simulation, and a virtual reality experience that will allow a single actor to play a multitude of different people.
