Virry VR is an integral part of the Virry Project conceived by Fountain Digital Labs, a London-based ethical technology company, which develops conscious digital projects for all ages. Founded in 2012, Fountain Digital boasts a collaborative team of more than 35 people across 5 countries. We unite conservation, education, and cinema art with innovative technologies – VR, AR, live-streaming – to create emotional experiences which raise awareness, consciousness, and facilitate global empathy and ecocentrism. We have won numerous awards among which are a British Academy Film Award (BAFTA) and Webbys. The transition into senior care can be a particularly stressful time. Moving to a new place without immediate family can create feelings of loneliness. Getting to know new people and integrate into the community can be difficult but we strongly feel that Virry can be a valuable way to build relationships between residents and help create those bonds.
