VIRTUAL REALITY ENHANCING LIVES

Imagine you could make a copy of a loved one. A digital clone with a life of its own – their avatar. That’s the dream of biomechanical engineer, Dr Jordan Nguyen, and he says we have the technology to do it right now. Virtual Reality might be thought as a way to play games but as Jordan discovers, it’s so much more. VR is being used to face phobias, to combat trauma and help reverse the effects of catastrophic spinal injury.
