Have you ever planned to visit a tourist attraction during a trip, only to realize that the attraction is not that attractive in real life and not worth a visit?

The migrant community in Singapore often face obstacles and problems throughout their time in Singapore that most Singaporeans are unaware of. These problems range from being unable to work because of an work-related injury to paying a agent a expensive fee just to come to Singapore to work. Our group hopes to use virtual reality (VR) to create authentic experiences for people to empathize with the problems the migrant community faces in Singapore from the perspective of a migrant construction worker.
