The VirtualSpeech app will help you practice for public speaking events and job interviews, by providing photo-realistic environments to train in. Works with Google Cardboard.
★ Animated Audience - the audience move and behave as they would at a real event, adding to the level of distraction and recreating the fear of public speaking.
★ Stunning 360 3D Environments - selection of high quality conference rooms to train your public speaking and interview skills in. Currently both a large and small conference room are available, as well as a panel style interview room.
★ Sound Distraction - ambient sound in conference rooms adds to the immersion and makes you feel like you are at the event.
★ Add Your Own Slides - Add your slides into the virtual conference room so that you can practice for an upcoming event. A short video tutorial on how to do this can be found here: https://youtu.be/PpJ4kwItnVM

What is Google Cardboard?
Google Cardboard is a low cost virtual reality platform which transforms a phone into a VR headset. Get your headset at http://virtualspeech.com/headsets
