VR has been dubbed, ‘The Ultimate Empathy Machine,’ for its ability to present new perspectives to its viewers.
 
This is an important quality, which is why the University of North Carolina has been using VR to teach its students cultural competencies to reduce any natural biases.
 
“In an era ripe with mistrust and fear, it’s easy to set empathy aside.” Read the article to find out more about how this research was conducted.

VR Shopping at Walmart

Retail giant Walmart is filing for patents that imply its dedication to VR being apart of its business strategy in the future.

Imagine, entering a virtual store from the comfort of your living room. You can travel up and down the aisles, grab items and put them in your cart. At the end, you check out just like you normally would, and your products are shipped to you later that week.

That is the future that Walmart envisions for its customers. Just another way that VR is being deeply integrated into the fabric of our society.
