Empathy Through a Suit?

Cultivating empathy is difficult, trying to psychologically put yourself in the shoes of others is not as easy as it seems. Just trying to read, listen or see the experiences of others does not always engage us. Videos, such as this ADHD simulation, might fare a little better but they still fall short from fully immersing us.

However, what if you could literally walk in the shoes of someone else – in an futuristic suit designed to let you physically experience the difficulties of the other person, in this case an elderly at 70 years old? Watch the video below on the instant ageing suit.
