It’s not just a game, it’s a quest to save the human brain.
Deutsche Telekom believes in “Life is for sharing.”, that’s why we created a game to help scientists fight dementia and work towards a future where memories are shared and not lost before their time. One of the first symptoms of dementia is loss of navigational skills. So far doctors could not differentiate between getting lost cause by disease and getting lost caused by natural ageing simply because a benchmark of “normal” navigation did not exist.
Sea Hero Quest mobile was the world’s largest research study ever, with almost 3 million players sharing data which would have taken 12,000 years to gather in a lab, helping to create the world’s first global benchmark for spatial navigation. But we’re not done, now Sea Hero Quest has been taken to the next level: Virtual Reality.
By harnessing the power of VR we’re able to replicate highly credible lab based experiments like the ‘Morris Water Maze’ that are simply not possible to reproduce in a mobile setting. We’re building on the crucial research we’ve already gathered with even more precise data. VR allows scientists to track even more subtle reactions, providing the detailed data they need to achieve a real breakthrough.
So whilst you have fun exploring 360° views of seas and swamps, you’re helping to bring scientists one step closer to developing new diagnostic tests and treatments for dementia.
You are a Sea Hero. Thank you for joining our Quest.
