Founder and CEO All These Worlds LLC

Dr. Jacquelyn Ford Morie has built her career around advancing technology to create meaningful, healthful and joy-giving experiences. Over the past 25 years she has developed multi-sensory techniques for virtual reality (VR) that can predictably elicit emotional responses from participants, for example inventing a scent collar that can deliver custom scents to a participant in VR.  She has worked extensively with smart avatars and was a PI on the NSF-funded project Virtual Girl Guides – life-sized twin conversational avatars that were installed at the Boston Museum of Science from 2009 - 2012. With her company All These Worlds, LLC (www.alltheseworldsllc.com), she is using her VR techniques to expand the capabilities of 3D virtual worlds (social VR) to provide stress relief for soldiers with online Mindfulness classes, and is working on a NASA-funded virtual world eco-system for future Mars-bound astronauts who need support to endure long separations from family and Earth. She is also co-founder of an Augmented Reality company creating exciting narrative-based AR travel apps. (augmentedtraveler.com )
