Disaster Training VR "RIVR"Rikei Corporation

Recently, Japan has been hit by major disasters, but education on disaster prevention is insufficient. Rikei is developing technology that allows users to simulate scenarios related to disaster prevention measures, such as natural disasters (earthquake, fire and flood) and disaster response (self-defense and firefighting) with using VR.
