Hospitalised Veterans Experience Virtual Parade

Google filmed the most recent NYC Veteran’s Day Parade in 360-degree video and created a VR version that would allow disabled or ill healthed veterans to experience the parade as well. The movie was shown on a Google Cardboard, allowing the veterans to temporarily escape their hospital beds to immerse themselves in a world of cheering crowds.

The action, called #UnitedWeMarch, is part of the Google Impact Challenge which focuses on improving the lives of the disabled.
Check the video below to get a hint of their experience (works best on a VR headset, of course).

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
