Overview

The AR VR For Peace Project takes two people who hate each other and brings them together with AR and VR. The experience is meant to leave the participants with a greater level of respect for one another. The participants are able to see and interact with each other in a safe AR or VR space. This multi-user experience allows for 2 or more people, located on opposite sides of the planet, to appear in front of one another. As though they were there. This is known as telepresence. Both the Hololens and VIVE are able to create these telepresence experiences. Activists have the ability to can now bring people together who are at distant locations or separated by political forces. The telepresent experience can be used  to create respect between the two participants. The software can be used to create a bridge between cultures and ideologies.
