Summary
Imagine you could make a copy of a loved one. A digital clone with a life of its own — their avatar. That’s the dream of biomechanical engineer Dr. Jordan Nguyen, and he says we have the technology to do it right now in the form of virtual reality. VR might be thought of as a way to play games, but asNguyen discovers, it’s so much more. VR is being used to face phobias, to combat trauma, and—in the case of one Newcastle man—to help reverse the effects of a catastrophic spinal injury.
