We start by meeting a scientist who is trying to create a way for people to have the sensation of touch through their prosthetic limbs. Then, a man considers himself “lucky” after having his legs amputated. Also, an essay about the challenges of finding the right medication for mental health. Next, a philanthropist who invests in research on the potential benefits of psychedelic drugs. We meet a man who wants to use augmented reality and artificial intelligence to see more clearly. Finally, using virtual reality in a hospital to comfort patients in pain.
Sound Effect showcases stories inspired by the place we live. The show is hosted by KNKX's Gabriel Spitzer.
