2018 Summit - Reality Revolution: How AR/VR Can Create Empathy, Urgency, and a New Sense of Place

Steve Johnson of Boundless Media blew us away with Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technologies, and the way that these mediums can bring experiences to viewers.

Giving a viewer a 360 degree experience complete with sound effects and movement provides a powerful communication platform with which to evoke emotions from the viewer and thus make that viewer care about these problems.

The future of AR/VR is incredibly bright and is developing rapidly with the power to make huge impact in environmental storytelling.
