Retirement plan organisation ICMA-RC has decided to concentrate its efforts on creating a virtual reality (VR) experience for those in the public sector to see what life is like during retirement for them.
There are two elements to RealizeRetirement, the name of the app, which are an animated video and a 360 VR experience. The VR experience can be viewed on your mobile using Google Cardboard. “The virtual reality video will give users a unique view of a “day in the life” of three public sector employees. The virtual reality video includes an enroll button on the interface, allowing public sector employees to enroll via their mobile device as permitted by their employer.”
“The first several months of ICMA-RC’s RealizeRetirement Tour have been a tremendous success, and this is a way to build upon those results,” said Gregory Dyson, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of ICMA-RC, in a press release. “By making innovative technology from the Tour broadly available to local and government workers through our mobile app, we are able to expand our reach and motivate users to think about and plan for retirement in a fun, interactive way.”
This as, as was said before, only available for those in the public sector, so there is no link to where you can get the app from.
