Description: Built as an experiment, VRIQ puts users into a room with one goal and instruction: “light up all the lights”. But how? Using your creative problem-solving ability, you’ll have to figure out as much as you can before time runs out. The test only takes 5 minutes, so if you’re curious how your “intelligence” compares to other VR users, give it a try!

We are open-sourcing the final score data (all anonymized) so that we can build an accurate distribution, just like a normal IQ test! Check out the 3DIQ blog to see how your score compares to others’. We’ll also be comparing Vive and Oculus scores for some friendly competition. Note: Intelligence is a complex skill/ability. This test is merely one indicator of comparative problem-solving ability in a VR scenario, so don’t feel discouraged if you get a low score. You’ll have a chance to redeem yourself in future tests, and each test you take will help hone your problem-solving skills!

Review: VRIQ’s biggest problem is that it doesn’t hold your hand. In fact, it doesn’t show you anything and that leads to people hating it. It is supposed to be an IQ test only in VR and that side of things does work, but to what end? There doesn’t seem to be an end-game, there doesn’t seem to be much fun to be had, it just all feels a little bit pointless. I think its issue is that it is too serious for its own good and that means it isn’t as much fun as it should be. The good news is it is at least free so do give it a go yourself and let me know what you think about it in the comments below.
