The New State of Storytelling: The Importance of Empathy in VR Narratives
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Virtual Reality allows us to view the world through the eyes of a stranger. We see what they see, we begin to understand what their life looks like and how it might feel if that life was ours. VR has been proclaimed the ultimate empathy machine. Its possibilities extend way beyond the realms of pure entertainment; it tells stories like never before, illustrated by the real sights, sounds and thoughts of another person.
