Distracted driving is never OK. To help educate everyone about the dangers of smartphone distracted driving, AT&T is bringing the IT CAN WAIT virtual reality simulator on tour to MAST Academy. The simulator is a virtual reality 360° driving experience showing the potentially deadly consequences of smartphone distracted driving. The IT CAN WAIT simulator is accompanied by knowledgeable campaign ambassadors and can be operated as a stand-alone educational program or incorporated into other public safety and educational programs.
Using the AT&T IT CAN WAIT VR app with the Samsung Gear VR headset, Galaxy Note smartphone and Bose headphones, students will experience the consequences of glancing at your phone while driving, in a 3-D setting.
The VR tour was spawned by research from AT&T that shows:
• Nearly 4 in 10 smartphone users tap into social media while driving.
• Almost 3 in 10 surf the net.
• About 1 in 7 is on Twitter behind the wheel.
• And surprisingly, 1 in 10 video chat.
