Featured Session: The Ultimate Potential of VR: Promises & Perils

Mar 12, 2023

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Voices of VR podcast host Kent Bye has been asking thousands of virtual reality creators "What is the ultimate potential of VR?" for over 8 years now, and he will be sharing some of the best answers that map out the future of spatial computing, immersive storytelling, and experiential design. He will also share how VR is catalyzing an interdisciplinary fusion of design processes from video games, filmmaking, HCI, social media, theatre, architecture, and new modes of multi-sensory design. VR also presents unique tech ethics challenges around privacy, accessibility, conduct moderation, etc., that will potentially require new laws or tech architectures. This session will set a broad context for some of the promises and perils of this new medium while also providing a glimmer for what's to come.
