@CNET: How virtual reality helps reunite families

These are some of the people that have been reunited with their families through this project.
A still from Salcabamba, Peru. Mama Pitu, Salcabamba’s oldest resident, at 103, explains how the town has changed over the years.
Frisly Sr., the father of one of the project’s founders, hasn’t seen his childhood friends in over 15 years. During his reunion, the feeling of closeness was so real, that he extended his hand to try to shake that of one of his friends.
