VR short films trigger happy memories for Alzheimer’s patients
This is part of a series of articles that looks at entrepreneurs hoping to get their ideas off the ground through crowdfunding. At the time of writing, each of these innovations is currently seeking funding.
The Kickstarter-funded The Wayback Project has reached its GPB 35,000 target to produce a series of short films using virtual reality (VR) that could help Alzheimer’s patients remember events from their past. The videos strive to take the viewer back to a familiar time and immerse them fully for a few minutes using VR. The first video is set to transport people back to the Queen’s Coronation in 1953, a moment in history that will be prominent for many of that generation. The creators behind the project will recreate scenes from the day in exact detail, including the location, the costumes, the props and the atmosphere. The viewer will be able to fully explore the scene, overhearing conversations and music from the time.
