As virtual reality hardware becomes more widespread, interactive room-scale VR experiences are expanding far beyond the realm of gaming. From cinematic experiences and art installations to training simulations and branded content, virtually every industry is experimenting with interactive VR.

Hear from the team behind ‘Job Simulator’, ‘Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality’, and the upcoming ‘Vacation Simulator’ as they share the latest best practices for room-scale VR— interaction with objects and characters, zone-based teleportation, accessible design, and more.
