Event description
Little Red Couch#2: Caregiving and Technology by Eugene Soh from MIND Palace

About this Event

The link between caregiving and technology is getting more and more inseparable in today’s world, especially with the onslaught of the pandemic.

Eugene Soh, our Tech Dude, will share how his social enterprise, Mind Palace, uses VR to help dementia patients and nursing home residents revisit fond places and explore the world from the comfort and safety of their chairs, keeping their minds active and slowing the effects of dementia.

Eugene Soh

Eugene Soh is the founder of Dude Studios (dude.sg), a creative tech studio focusing on Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality, and Mind Palace (mindpalacevr.org), a social enterprise.

He grew up as a self-taught computer programmer, tinkering with the latest fun technology when he accidentally became an artist after his photographic piece, contextualizing Da Vinci’s Last Supper in a local hawker centre setting, went viral on social media in 2012. That discovery, with its tongue-in-cheek commentary on contemporary life in Singapore, catapulted him into the art world. Many awards and exhibitions later, he has not stopped creating and tinkering.
