project shows how augmented reality can foster empathy with news and social issues

Augmented reality (AR) is just one of the immersive technologies that give publishers a chance to develop new storytelling formats, alongside virtual reality and 360-video.

Empathetic Media, a company built to foster empathy between storytellers and their audiences through these newer technologies, conducted its latest experiment with augmented reality on 29 July, a day before the World Day against Trafficking in Persons.
