Chris Milk: How virtual reality can create the ultimate empathy machine

This was a very interesting video to watch which shows how virtual reality can create the ultimate empathy machine and the steps that can be taken in order to do this the video was also quite funny which was a nice touch. I  believe this was a video that was suggested by Greg and I really enjoyed watching there were a few things said that were of particular interest.

“Why is it difficult to explain? It’s difficult because it’s a very experiential medium. You feel your way inside of it. It’s a machine, but inside of it, it feels like real life, it feels like truth. And you feel present in the world that you’re inside and you feel present with the people that you’re inside of it with.”

“It’s not a video game peripheral. It connects humans to other humans in a profound way that I’ve never seen before in any other form of media. And it can change people’s perception of each other. And that’s how I think virtual reality has the potential to actually change the world.”

“So, it’s a machine, but through this machine we become more compassionate, we become more empathetic, and we become more connected. And ultimately, we become more human.”
