The growth and development of virtual reality will help bring people closer, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said Wednesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
"Virtual reality is being used at this conference to show a film called 'Clouds Over Sidra.' It tells the story of a 12-year-old refugee girl, and what her life is like," Sandberg said in a panel. "Because it's virtual reality, it's really much easier to feel connected to her and have an immersive experience."
Facebook bought Oculus VR for $2 billion in 2014. Oculus VR is best known for its trademark virtual reality headset, the Oculus Rift.
