graham j. passmores insight:
The sentence in this article that caught my attention the most--other than the headline--was "VR has the potential to remake storytelling, from how we watch movies to how we play games to how we pass time while waiting for a flight." 

The biggest message I've heard about content marketing for the past couple of years--or much of technical communication, for that matter--is that it's comes down to storytelling. If you tell a good story, people will buy into it, whether it's in print, audio, video, web, or now virtual reality.  This article seems to be heralding the call--"Technical communicators! We need you now!" Who better to be the storytellers? Who better to be the ones to help others create content strategies for future virtual content. As the article says, the sky is the limit! 

Would you want to be part of creating content for virtual reality? I think I would want to do that. What about you? Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

How to Tell a Person's Brain Age

How to Tell a Person's Brain Age | 3239 | Scoop.it
“People are searching for the tree rings of humans,” James Cole, a research associate at Imperial College London, told The Scientist.

Cole and his colleagues recently devised their own technique of predicting the biological age of people’s brains using a combination of machine learning and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. In a study published last month (April 25) in Molecular Psychiatry, the team reported that this technique was able to predict mortality in humans—people with “older” brains, they found, had greater risk of dying before age 80.
