Virtual Reality Now Available As A High Tech, High Touch Team Building Event
Let’s travel in time back to the ’90s when Virtual Reality now known as VR concept was just a thought? There were some prototypes, but unfortunately, they were far from becoming a reality. The only VR devices that were on the market by that time were heavy, huge machines that weren’t portable at all.
Almost 20 years later, the first VR headset concept was finally on the market. Looking at the potential of this product, companies such as Sony, Facebook, Google, started to invest in their VR projects such as Oculus VR, Project Morpheus, VR Headset for PS4, etc. Virtual Reality has many different uses such as gaming, shopping, medical training, to name a few. Some forward-thinking companies imagined it could be used for team building and training activities?
Virtual Reality as a team building event has evolved and through our partnership with Catalyst Global Team Building. TeamBonding has launched the world’s first VR team building event in the world. The team from Catalyst Tunisia created The Infinite Loop came up with a creative and beneficial use for it. They were the first company that uses virtual reality for team building activities and offer this technology through the Catalyst Network of team building providers to help intact teams and are now creating a new version for remote teams.
Introducing “The Infinite Loop”
The Infinity Loop program main goal is to provide teams real-time communication, collaborative problem solving, data gathering, knowledge sharing, building and deploying solutions, and more. The mission of this team building activity is to save a young man trapped in a virtual world.
The teams will have to find clues in the virtual world and solutions in the real world. It’s the perfect combination of a unique and beneficial team experience.
“Thank you for your help in getting the Infinite Loop together for us so quickly, and even with weather issues! We had an amazing time and it was quite a hit with the Innovation team.” Protiviti, Chicago, IL

I can get inspiration from anywhere but I never thought it would be from my neighborhood fast food place. Truth is, it’s not just my neighborhood restaurant, McDonald’s is one of the most successful worldwide brands and they just introduced a similar strategy to my company. Maybe they were inspired by us?
At TeamBonding we love having the chance to help our clients give back and helping their communities. It’s even better when we can help companies focus on their corporate social responsibilities and actually have an impact instead of creating vague initiatives. Part of the fun for us is coming up with new ideas and creating new programs to continue giving back. We have a variety of programs from our Charity Bike Build and Team Teddy Rescue Bear programs, Operation Military Care to provide care packages to our troops, all the way to Paws for a Cause where you make dog beds, pull toys, or cat scratchers for animals in shelters – among so many other charitable program options!
Mention team building and you’ll see a lot of eye rolls. Mention that you’ve planned a team building event and the room will fill with groans. To a lot of people, team building feels like a corporate buzzword synonymous with forced participation, uncomfortable interaction and just a means to an end. Some think of it as purely a waste of time, taking them away from work they could be doing.
