CNET's Scott Stein took a journey into the world of the chronically ill and disabled as he tried out "Unrest." This user-led VR experience is based on a documentary film of the same name that's also making its world debut here.
"Treehugger: Wawona" makes its North American debut today at the Tribeca festival. Put on the headset and backpack and you'll be able to explore the world of a giant redwood tree. The creators say the longer you hug the tree the deeper you "drift into treetime."
"NeuroSpeculative AfroFeminism" features what are said to be the first black female avatars, which were created especially for this experience. Guests sit in a virtual hair salon and are told a story through "speculative product design" and "cognitive research."
