Virtual Reality: What are YOU‪?‬ YOU: Technology + Identity

    • Technology

Is virtual reality the ultimate escape? Done right, could it completely convince the user that they are in an entirely different place—or even an entirely different person? In this episode we explore how virtual reality is challenging our notions of who we are. Alvaro Morales, co-founder of the Reunions Project, uses VR to connect families across continents. Then, host Claire L. Evans talks with Unity Labs’ Timoni West about how VR isn’t just an escape: It could actually help make our reality better.
