A pioneer in virtual reality techonlogy for over forty years, Thomas Furness talks to NPR's All Things Considered about what the future of the platform holds.

"I think that the biggest thing that we can do short-term is education, to help people become aware [of a problem] — and I mean aware in a visceral way. We can be aware in our head but not in our heart, and what VR can do is get our heart into it because it's up close and personal," says Furness. "Virtual reality is the way to move your senses to another place. And it can be a place where you're collaborating with other people who understand the science and the technology that could help make these changes happen."
