UNHCR : #MakeTechHumanitarian

UNHCR – The Refugee Agency chose to use shared VR to increase empathy and deliver an emotive message

The Refugee Agency wanted a way to help people appreciate the enormity of life as a refugee. As part of its #MakeTechHumanitarian initiative, it commissioned a series of films with the Nokia OZO 360° camera, and used our 6 metre dome for Shared VR screenings.
