The Verge Releases Short Documentary Featuring Diplopia

The Verge just posted an amazing series of articles about the past, present, and future of virtual reality. They cover Diplopia in a short documentary in the segment about virtual reality being used to solve real world problems.

From the article: "James Blaha suffers from what’s known as “lazy eye,” a condition that prevents him from experiencing the depth perception and 3D vision most of us are accustomed to. It’s a problem that doesn’t yet have a foolproof treatment, especially for adults, and Blaha is intent on changing that — using virtual reality as his tool. Diplopia, the startup he co-founded after a blockbuster Kickstarter campaign, is designing a virtual reality game that essentially tricks the brain into strengthening a patient’s weak eye. Blaha’s hope? To create an effective virtual treatment for patients who, until now, haven’t seen results from conventional methods."
