Simian Labs makes VR Science easier than ever before.

Virtual Reality for Scientific Experiments

Simian Virtual Reality is a web-based publisher for scientific experiments. Your experiment is built for you, the data is generated and outputted to you in easy to publish formats.

It’s the data

Simian Labs is dedicated to giving high quality virtual reality so that you can focus on quality science, data collection, and truth finding. We work to customize your experiments to exactly what you need. The virtual reality is a key part of this process, but the scientific outcomes are our shared goal. We want you to publish and bring new truths to the world.

Complexity made easy

Science is hard enough. IRB’s, grants, manuscripts, submissions, revisions, take years. We want to take the headache out of the process for you. We’ll take care of the technical aspects of VR, and give you the data you need. We’ll maintain the servers. We’ll update when a new version comes out. You focus on the science. We’ll focus on the technical aspects.

Best in class technology

Virtual reality is a fast-moving field. Simian labs seeks to offer a combination of the best technology for your scientific experiments with the modular flexibilty to ensure you get the most of your grant dollars. Our who/what/when/where/why modular configuration ensures you can isolate the key neurological variables you need while limiting the costs for you. Grants are tight. Make your dollars stretch further.

Tech Transfer standardization

If you create unique IP on our platform, we will always help you keep it as yours. You monetize it, partner with us, and bring your invention to the world. We’re your partner from initial idea all the way to market and beyond.

We provide the technology,  you do the Science


Configure your Experiment Online

All configurations work as a drag and drop so your experiment is easy to configure, change, and collect data easily


Multivariable Isolation

Isolate Who, What, When, Where, Why & How. Simian VR is VR for scientists to experiment.


Collect Data

Pathway views, raw data, and first person views all for review

Isolate Variables

Avatars, Social interactions. Change the user’s appearance, voice, and social interactions. Subjects can interact with researcher, other participants, and control how the interaction between participants occur.
Items and exploration. Signage, interactive objects, and more. Your standard experiment package comes with 10 object items from our vast library to insert into your experiment.
Manipulate Zeitgebers, dilate time, reverse time. When and how the user perceives time can be modified.
Environments, contexts, mazes. Library of environments at your disposal. Where the experiment occurs, whether that is a laboratory or other mazes and puzzles can be created within the context of your experiment. See our environments
Multiple options for reward, and punishment. Operant conditioning experiments are easy with rewards and punishments that can link to real (safe) shock on subjects.
Methods and education. Limit key actions such as jumping/walking/running/swimming and other key motion interactions. How users interact with the world, movement types, can all be manipulated.

Ease of Use

Flexibility for your scientific needs

Easy customization and start screen allows you to deliver the mazes you need to your customers offline, online, wherever they may be.

Multiple Experiments

Manage a host of experiments, multiple variables and multiple data streams

A wide selection of variables at your disposal so that you can test multiple modalities of behavior in your subjects easily.

Data First

Data rich outputs including pathway, raw location, first person replay, and easy exports

Data generated by your patients are easily displayed in multiple modalities and exportable to the format you need to find the differences and get published.

User Experience

A combination of the physical world with virtual reality – a unique environment for research and study

Our Virtual Reality Solutions features high definition, attention to detail, creating an environment that blends physical and virtual space.

We also do custom development. Get in touch with us and we can discuss your project
