The Technology Behind Project Humanize U.S.

The Project HumanizeUS journey through America is documented through 360-degree videos on our YouTube channel.

[Virtual reality] is a machine, but through this machine we become more compassionate, we become more empathetic, and we become more connected. And ultimately, we become more human.
— Chris Milk, United Nations VR technogist

With 360° film, you can now see the environment in which we conduct interviews, country landscapes through which we drive, and emotions with which we share our stories.

Our Vision

The empathy learned and stories heard from this journey will also provide the foundation of an upcoming VR film's character development process. This film will use a more creative approach to teaching empathy, aiming to employ first, second, and third person experiential perspectives.

How to Watch

Check out our Videos page, as well as our YouTube channel. Although these videos can be watched as you normally would, for the best experience, we recommend using the YouTube mobile app and a $5 Cardboard for an immersive experience (highly recommended).

It's storytime...VR style!
