Virtual Reality Summit - Seoul - Day 1 - Thursday, June 28th, 2018
We have a problem in XR: Teams who develop experiences are often friends with each other- we look like one another, we act like one another, and to some extent, we think like one another. And when that happens, the experience doesn't work for a lot of people. In the industry, it's called the disembodiment of our experience, and players just can't buy into a viewpoint that isn't theirs. This talk will be about how inclusion and diversity can help your experience get played by more people, repeatedly, before you finish coding "frame 1".
Increasingly, studies show that better organisational training outcomes can be achieved by using VR based training. During VR training employees practice performing high-risk tasks in the safety of immersive VR environments, free to make mistakes that may otherwise have serious consequences, collaborate better and verify that they are competent prior to performing these tasks in real life. This talk will discuss ways that VR has been used to address safety training in the resource sector, pitfalls and challenges with the technology as well as some thoughts on future direction.
