CyberLink Corp. Sets VR-Watching World Record

CyberLink Corp., a multimedia technology company, set the Guinness World Records title for the “Longest marathon watching [of] virtual reality (VR) video content. To reach its record breaking goal, Team CyberLink, with help from two devoted New York-based movie fans, endured and recorded a 50-hour non-stop viewing session in a virtual reality headset, setting the bar for future challengers.”

Robert Glatter, an emergency room physician, monitored the participants. He says, “This challenge offered by CyberLink was a fascinating opportunity to review the effects of prolonged immersion in VR on someone’s health. … There has been a lot of speculation about the impact of VR on a person’s health, but there are few studies that have examined its effects in a controlled environment.”
