A virtual reality headset, a vest, and sensors “transport her” to a rain forest. Her arms feel like tree branches, her body is the trunk, and she smells foliage. “There was really a progression and you really felt like you were there as this tree growing over the life of a tree,” she said.This virtual reality experience is one of more than 100 exhibits at the 2017 Future of Storytelling Festival.The three day event showcases a variety of technologies, from augmented reality to interactive installations that enable multi-sensory storytelling.
