How Virtual Reality could work for the ageing population

I was stunned by a speech delivered by Google at the recent Cannes advertising festival.

The presentation covers three aspects where VR will change our lives; Story, Art and Memory.

While the whole 50 minute deliver is eye-opening, I was blown away with the articulation of possible uses of VR in the area of memory. (at about the 46:00 mark). They talk of the possibilities of re-living fond memories WITH loved ones, so it’s not too much of a stretch to imagine how VR might be used to help or ease cognitive ageing.

Well worth watching.
