“People don’t trust their senses above what they read online” – brilliant example of how social media can be used to manipulate (and how dangerous it can be).
This is an excellent case study in how VR can be used for training. Of all types. Some of the commenters don’t understand why inmates get to “play” with VR for free, while “regular” people can’t afford headsets…VR can be about play, of course; but it’s also a powerful tool to help someone “practice” interacting with others. It’s potentially a huge empathy building tool. I was asked this morning how it could be used to train young women to deal with bullying, and harassment, for example. Will give that one a think too.
