About Us…

Virtual Cyber Studios LLC (VCS) was established with the main purpose and focus of developing and selling customized, cutting edge 3D / Virtual Reality (3D/VR) simulations centered towards education and training of cyber security, personal high-risk situations and hazardous duty work environments. We believe 3D / VR Simulations will make a significant impact on the business landscape.

As an example, Violent Intruder – Classroom is one of the simulations we are currently working on. It simulates a classroom environment in which decisions need to be made by the Instructor to ensure the safety of all the students. This simulation is presented only from the Instructor’s point of view. The simulation participant will hear the Active Shooter’s activities but never actually see the shooter or the damage inflicted.
