Use virtual reality for everyday problems. Two Sardinian startuppers have invented Icnodent, glasses to wear to overcome the fear of the dentist.
Students of the Faculty of Dentistry in Madrid, Christian and Jonathan Mulas have won a competition for the most innovative ideas. Instead of the dreaded drill, those who wear glasses will see a film, a football pitch or read a book. Christian attributes coming up with this idea while battling with drug addiction in rehab. His brother Jonathan turned to friends and family to help support Christian. They found great strength in God and became more understanding of what they could do to help someone with drug addiction.
Small and big stories. Wildix, a multinational born in Trento, launches a 3D virtual reality helmet for those who work at the PC (call center workers, employees, assistants, managers …).
The goal is to combine, in a kind of simplified tai chi , productivity and training. The various actions (scrolling through the phone book, transferring a call, involving a colleague) will be performed with arm gestures. The software will impose breaks and can document productivity contests.
