Can virtual reality make you feel empathy?

Hosted by  • 

Last week, Facebook's "Oculous Rift" began shipping headsets to customers, but virtual reality is about much more than games or entertainment. The New York Times, the Des Moines Register, Frontline -- and KCRW -- are among the media organizations using it.

Nonny de la Peña debuted "Project Syria" at the World Economic Forum in Davos. It's a "full-body" experience that puts viewers at the scene of a bombing, and then allows exploration of a refugee camp. De la Peña is co-founder of the Emblematic Group.
