VR shows great promise - taking content that would normally be filmed in 2D, and filming it in 360° to create the feeling that the viewer is actually there. But how do we improve that sense of presence? This panel will discuss virtual reality's next step: Mixed Reality. MR takes VR's sense of presence to the next level through the creation of environments and overlays that can be bent and molded to the viewers will, creating a sense of agency that will unlock another level of real immersion.
