It seems like the added cost of "doing it in VR" is going to be a deterrent for adoption in any kind of educational setting. Assuming about 2k USD for VR headset and capable computer to play "Lazer type" You could easily be looking at 80k to outfit a larger lab for this type of activity. A larger lab being a requirement for ever increasing class sizes There are some other benefits as more educational applications come online but you're looking at potentially hiring two teachers or building a VR lab for the same cost.

Looks like a good idea, but I don't really see how this game benefits from being in VR opposed to just words on a monitor. While the VR aspect is probably cool, they could probably be far more successful (especially in the educational sector) if they just used a standard computer monitor as I don't think too much of the experience or fun would be lost.
