Experience what it’s like to be Autistic and Blind in VR

Virtual Reality enables us to experience and emotionally connect with the world presented around us in a way that we’ve never been able to do before.  It allows to to feel what it’s like to actually ‘be there’.   The following are two links which demonstrate what it to experience sensory overload from someone who is autistic.  Naturally autism spans a large spectrum, but this helps us have a better understanding of those around us and the challenges they face in what may seem to be ordinary circumstances for the rest of us.

This second link is a Sundance film called Notes on Blindness : Into Darkness which explores a VR project based on the sensory and psychological experience of blindness.
