In the race to build the Metaverse, there are a plethora of ways in which content makers, technophiles, brands and consumers are rising to the challenge.

Everyone will wear AR glasses on their faces by 2030. Just centimeters from our optic nerve, computers have never been closer to our brains. This changes both content creation and consumption.

These immersive technologies could create a more empathetic, educated and empowering future. But they could also promote inequality and fake news.

Yusuf Omar, Co-CEO of SEEN, has been wearing cameras on his face for over a decade. His team has overlaid journalism stories on cities from Boston to Cape Town. Everyone loves a good story, especially if they can be a part of that story. And that’s what immersive storytelling does. On your face.
