According to the United Nations, in 1950, the world had 2.5 billion people. In 2005, the population increased to 6.5 billion people. By 2050, the number of inhabitants on earth could rise to more than 9 billion. The Living Room is a VR experience that immerses the user into what population growth and resource scarcity on our planet look like in a living room.
