The XR Creators speaker series is a regular event held by the XR Creators Unite community, where community members and others interested in VR and AR gather to share information. This week's featured speaker is Sarah Hill.
Sarah Hill is the CEO of Healium, a virtual and augmented reality tool for the self-management of stress powered by the user's own brainwaves and heart rate. After 20 years as a TV reporter covering trauma, her media diet of reporting the day's headlines ultimately made her sick. Hill developed Healium for herself as well as the 41 million others who struggle with anxiety.
Healium is a digi-ceutical for people to detox from what they're consuming digitally. Healium is the world’s first biometrically-powered VR/AR immersive media channel controlled by the user's brainwaves and heart rate via consumer wearables.
Hill's XR experiences are clinically validated in 3 peer-reviewed journals and have been viewed more than 7 million times. She is also a former interactive TV news journalist for the NBC, ABC, & CBS affiliates in Missouri. A national Edward R. Murrow, NAB Service to America, National Sigma Delta Chi, and 12-time mid-America Emmy award-winning TV reporter, Hill has 25 years of experience building unique media franchises. She spent decades reporting about the world’s negativity and trauma in Sri Lanka, Zambia, Guatemala, Indonesia, and Congo. Healium's roots are in virtual travel for Veterans. In 2015, Hill’s team built a program called “Honor Everywhere”, that uses Virtual Reality to allow aging Veterans the opportunity to see their WWII, Vietnam, Korea, & Women’s Memorials.
