"We will be investing upwards of Rs 50 crore in the next three to five years towards development and expansion of our AR and VR educational contents portfolio." Kandhari further said: "We will also be looking at the overseas market like the US, the UK, Singapore and China, where the market for such products has already been developed." MBD's 3D virtual reality simulations will be made available for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12.

Additionally, the group plans to deliver VR content for vocational / skill courses in the informal education sector as well.

Apart from the group's own VR device, MBD's VR content will be compatible with all other VR devices like Samsung Gear, Oculus Rift and the like for wider accessibility.
