VR IS a new medium; but we've been here before. Experts from the early days of VR will present lessons learned with their relevance to today’s more affordable and accessible VR. We’ll use our collective history and examples to look at the future. Today, VR is still being tied to old media - trying to be film, games and storytelling, when its strengths lie far beyond these older media forms. Even with more people creating VR, the gear is far more visible than the experiences enabled by it. VR creators must learn from the past, and build works to provide immersive experiences that bring us emotional resonance, and agency to form our own memories as a normal part of our everyday future lives.
