LOS ANGELES, California—March 10, 2020
AIXR, The Academy of International Extended Reality, is leading the way for standardized hygiene, and put its organization’s recommendation behind Cleanbox Technology, endorsing Cleanbox products as “meeting all criteria for the safe use of virtual, augmented and mixed reality headsets.” AIXR published its “COVID-19 Safety for Virtual and Augmented Reality Guidelines” late last month.
Cleanbox’s sanitizing system was again mentioned in relation to COVID-19 in Forbes “This Week in XR: Are Pandemics Good for VR?.” Out-of-home entertainment consultant and former Disney LBE executive, Kevin Williams, said, “‘LBVR has always had hygiene concerns. It’s a full-blown problem now. This is the worst possible time for self-cleaning self-service headsets to start showing up in bars.’ Our bet is that Cleanbox, which provides large sanitizing boxes for LBVR and other venues, is going to have a very good year.”
