I will now talk about whether VR is an “Empathy Machine” for 12.5 min
Various people have suggested that I spend some time talking about Virtual Reality and all the interesting thoughts, challenges, and other bits and pieces around it, on YouTube. So I’m giving that a go!
First video: the whole “VR as Empathy Machine” concept. Is it right? If not, what IS VR?
