Border Stories puts people along the US-Mexico border to not only experience real stories but to make their own volumetric pieces that can be created online using Emblematic Group's webVR platform REACH and then shared via a simple web link. REACH makes the immersive power of volumetric VR available to anyone. A simple drag-and-drop interface lets users place real people into high-res 3D environments, and then share the results online across multiple platforms such as laptops, tablets, mobile phones and VR headsets. Users can easily upload and combine a range of assets and place them into volumetric locations, creating pieces that literally put viewers "on scene" inside the story.
