Virtual Reality Creator, Tobin Asher

We love solving puzzles. So does our latest guest and VR-Research hero: Tobin Asher, Associate Director of Global Partnerships for Stanford’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab. Tobin investigates how media impacts society, and considers empathy at scale – how can we connect; how can we better understand each other; how can we get closer through VR? Our discussion with Tobin reveals fascinating philosophical and scientific insights into the nuanced power of storytelling through immersive technology, and the potential of VR to educate, disrupt, and inspire.
