4/17 Evening "Humans & Virtual Reality" - FREE

Apr 17, 2018 · San Francisco, United States of America

“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 and pleasurable, but when done badly, they can result in frustration and sickness. In this free 3-hour workshop Jason Jerald, author of "The VR Book: Human-Centered Design for Virtual Reality" and Co-Founder & Principal Consultant of NextGen Interactions, through a combination of use cases and demonstrations will show how users perceive and intuitively interact with various forms of reality, discuss the causes of VR sickness, and demonstrate how to employ useful and 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 and exciting technology.

This workshop is for everyone, whether a developer, content creator, filmmaker, or simply someone interested in knowing more about VR.
