Talespin, a company that utilizes spatial computing to train workers, has released its extended reality (XR) learning app on the Meta Quest platform. The app, initially designed for enterprise use, is now available to the general public, allowing anyone to experience virtual worlds and acquire valuable skills. Using AI-powered virtual human characters and RPG-style simulations, Talespin’s app enables users to practice and develop essential skills necessary for today’s evolving workforce, such as effective communication and collaboration. One of its popular training scenarios is teaching individuals how to dismiss an older employee gracefully. With the increasing demand for skills in hybrid work environments, Talespin’s immersive learning experiences aim to enhance individuals’ value in a technologically augmented workplace.
The Talespin app offers a diverse library of immersive learning content, interactive lessons, personalized feedback, and an inclusive learning journey for users from various backgrounds and goals. It helps users cultivate and master essential abilities needed in the workplace, with a focus on communication, collaboration, and unbiased thinking. The app aims to bridge perspectives and help individuals accomplish their goals through immersion in virtual worlds. Talespin plans to expand its immersive learning content offerings by bringing its enterprise titles, such as “Where’d Everybody Go?” and “Leading Through Uncertainty,” to Meta Quest’s user base of 20 million. They also have a roadmap for new content releases, including a title from Singularity University, to continuously enhance the app’s offerings.
Kyle Jackson, CEO of Talespin, expressed excitement about making the app available to people everywhere and supporting their growth. According to Jackson, immersion into virtual worlds for skill practice and real experience is a game-changer in personal and professional growth. Talespin has seen success in helping employees accelerate skills development with XR in enterprise settings, and now they aim to extend that impact to a wider audience.
