“ We tested this first project in private schools in Costa Rica and it was very well received. The feedback from the children was very good. They told us that they really liked learning this way. Other content we have is the cellular world, the Mayan world and putting together the world map… In education there is a huge business; specifically developing a program so that schools can have their own virtual reality classroom. We have signed contracts for $ 200,000 and the purchase intentions total over $ 400,000…Xavier Rubio, founder of Pixdea
