In 2018, the effectiveness of combining stereoscopic 360-degree experiences with binaural audio content was confirmed by a study conducted at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The latest worldwide studies on the effects of relaxation, regeneration after stress, virtual reality and interactive content were consulted by Dr. Christian Stein at gamelab.berlin, part of the Excellence Cluster Image Knowledge Design of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The study rates the effectiveness of the Magic Horizons concept as thoroughly positive. The Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin will collaborate with the Charité University Hospital in Berlin for future tests relating to VR experiences.
“The approach by Magic Horizons, which involves combining binaural, orchestral musical experiences with stereoscopic images in Virtual Reality therefore aims to achieve relaxation effects, stress reduction, and anxiety reduction.” (Quote from Dr. Christian Stein, study from 1/11/2018)
