Without a clear understanding of the human side of virtual reality, the experience will always fail. (Jason Jerald)
Designing for virtual reality is an incredibly complex challenge. When done well, these experiences can be brilliant & pleasurable, but when done badly, they can result in frustration & sickness. In this free 3-hour workshop Jason Jerald, author ofThe VR Book: Human-Centered Design for Virtual Reality andCo-Founder & Principal Consultant of NextGen Interactions,through a combination of use cases & demonstrations will show how users perceive & intuitively interact with various forms of reality, discuss the causes of VR sickness, & demonstrate how to employ useful & pleasing content to create an immersive experience.
When you leave the workshop, you will understand virtual reality from the human experience perspective, allowing you to better create - or simply appreciate - powerful VR applications, whether for entertainment, education, science, healthcare, or the myriad of other uses of this new & exciting technology.
This workshop is for everyone, whether a developer, content creator, filmmaker, or simply someone interested in knowing more about VR.
