Virtual Reality & Aging


Jake Kahana is a creative director and artist who creates work that improves people's lives in underserved communities. One of his most recent projects, BettVR with Age, brings virtual reality films to senior citizens to enrich the lives and engage with those seniors that are homebound or have limited mobility. Over the course of a year and a half, Kahana spent time with seniors in New York City, understanding their needs before filming nearly a dozen VR films that capture everything from museum tours to pop-up concerts in unique NYC locations. The project has been featured in WIRED, Vice, among others and continues to serve seniors across the country. Learn more at Bettvrwithage.com
