The Danish crew from DRTV experiences VRESPECT.ME


The TV crew of Danish channel DRTV experienced embodiment through our application designed to rehabilitate and induce empathy in perpetrators of domestic violence. The experience is an incredibly powerful one, where the man is put in the shoes of a woman being abused and harassed. The aggressor literally gets to experience what their victim goes through.


When Charlie Pearmund, the business development manager at Virtual Bodyworks, was asked, “How real does it feel?” by the TV crew, he replied, “Incredibly real, every time! I think if I did it a hundred times and that moment when he comes to you, you will always step away”.
