Prepare your eyeballs for virtual reality

by Travis Faas

Session (50 Minutes)

Virtual Reality as we have all wanted it to be is almost here. Between the Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear, Steam VR, and other OSVR technologies, we will soon be awash in virtual reality applications and experiences. This is a new world, with new interaction patterns that need to be followed. Over the span of this presentation we will look at the capabilities of the different VR technologies, play around with the most accessible of them (Google Cardboard), and discuss common approaches to design problems that arise with VR applications.
