5 years ago, Frontline aired the documentary Digital Nation: Life on the Virtual Frontier: a look at how the world, with a focus on the current generation, has become addicted to advancing technology. The idea came from award-winning producer Rachel Dretzin, while commentator Douglas Rushkoff came along for the ride.
The documentary focused on social media, gaming, and a revolution in virtual reality. It is obvious that the world today is bombarded with digital media and this presentation, more than anything, showed a lot of issues with this and tended to lean towards the negative and focused on many people’s fears for the digital age.
Fast forward to today and the digital age is alive and well and making incredible advancements when it comes to Virtual Reality and the practical applications seem to be limitless as shown by this infographic from Nowsourcing.
