Public VR Lab, launched an innovative 360 video/VR immersive journalism collaboration with the #STAT team from the Boston Globe.(BIG) and its VR-in-the-Public-Interest project, the
Brookline citizen journalists from the STAT team trained Boston Globe journalists in immersive storytelling production techniques, and they will be working side-by-side with them to create three day-in-the-life 360 experiences of Boston’s science and medical world.
Visitors can go places where normally only doctors and scientists go: An infant trauma unit functioning under pressure at Boston’ s Children’s Hospital, the activities of a student at Tuft’s Dental School, the world’s leading Ebola scientists working in a lab here in Boston to make Ebola “happy” in order to study how it grows and spreads.
The collaborative will be at shipping Container #18 through Sunday.
