Episode: R70i Suit Forces People To Face Perils Of Aging: This Is What It Feels Like To Age 30 Years
Genworth recently partnered with Applied Minds to develop the next generation Aging Experience. Discover how the Aging Experience is designed to get people talking about aging issues and myths around long term care.
Bran Ferren: The good news is we're all living longer. The challenge is how do we develop strategies that help people prepare for that and best take care of their loved ones? The Applied Minds team is working with Genworth to develop a new kind of conversation with the American public.
Clint Hope: It is the right time to build this suit. If you to tried to build it 20 years ago, you would not have had the technology.
Bran Ferren: Is it the same as aging? No, but it's the next best thing.
Clint Hope: It's an opportunity for us to put a lot of sensors that are meaningful, turn them on and off, and to change the suit depending on the story you're trying to tell.
Mike Keesling: So when you put the helmet on, you're going to be living in a digital world where I can change and add to it.
Bran Ferren: If this experience can give people the ability just by raising awareness to be better prepared, it will make all of this worthwhile.
