Intel's VR Experience Helps the Elderly Relive Moments and Make Dreams Come True
Intel Brazil and news portal Razões para Acreditar have joined forces to launch the 'Technology and Life' initiative to better people's lives with technology through visual experiences.
One of the subjects addressed with the initiative is technology's impact on elderly care. Three movies were created based on a visit to a nursing home, where residents were invited to use virtual reality glasses to feel as if they were in the past or to visit places they have never been.
"Virtual reality experiences require high computing power, and Intel is in a leading position to offer these solutions. In the case of this initiative, the feeling is even better because we see our participation in a technology that can, indeed, be a complement to some cases of health care," said Carlos Buarque, Intel Marketing Director.
The initiative will also have a content channel with information on technology's importance in the treatment of diseases such as autism, visual and motor disabilities, as well as the evolution of medicine itself.
"Technology goes far beyond the innovations of everyday life. It has a therapeutic capacity of reconnecting people to actions and human experiences. The pleasure of promoting this project in partnership with Intel, as well as researching and creating content, is helping us understand that technology is intrinsically linked to people's welfare," said Vicente Carvalho, editor-in-chief at Razões para Acreditar.
