[ Ecological Valence Theory ]
Liminal VR is working with a global network of developers to create a VR consumer psychology platform to empower people to consciously choose how they want to feel throughout the course of the day.
We combine neuroscience and design principles in virtual reality to induce a range of cognitive and emotional states, affording you the ability to control and augment your state of mind.
Starting with calm and energy, our mission is to safely empower people to choose how they want to feel throughout the course of the day.
Our non-representational aesthetic approach breaks down cultural barriers and induces psychological outcomes through universal valences.
