Humans have shared gathered around and communicated through stories throughout history. Text, pictures, images and videos have sought to capture our imagination, or portray the non-fictional in a relatable way. Now, as we move beyond the 2D flat screen to new ways of interacting/communicating with the world — virtual and augmented reality, for example — we begin to see the power of immersion in storytelling, and the impact it has, beyond anything we have ever seen, on those in the receiving end. Arguably, the ultimate empathy machine.
