In an endeavor to help seniors see more of the world, this virtual reality travel project enabled older people to view different destinations. Technology and Life is a collaborative effort between Intel, online platform Razões para Acreditar (or Reasons to Believe) and public relations agency Burson-Marstellar to showcase how technology can benefit health and wellness.
This dream-fulfilling example gave elderly folks living in a Brazilian community the opportunity to realize their travel goals. The residents were given VR headsets containing a variety of travel experiences. The virtual reality travel gave them a chance to see places they never got to, while others enjoyed revisiting past favorites. The emotional initiative left wearers feeling excited and often nostalgic.
