The effect of being in the camp through virtual reality was more impactful than it other techniques. The ability to see through another person’s eyes allowed me to feel like I was there. Unfortunately, there are limitations which downplay the gravity of the experience.
For example, you cannot smell what is happening. Though this may seem small the ability to smell the costs of a lack of running water are not tangible. Additionally, we cannot feel the thirst they feel or the heat on their faces. While sight is helpful to the ability to understand their plight the other senses are not including making the small elements less impactful. This is also a personal problem but my head hurt very badly and I could not see. The limitations of the technology were certainly present but I felt as though I had a better understanding of their situation once I finished the video.
