Real Challenges in Designing the Unreal

Let’s get real about why immersive technology matters.

Amidst a daily onslaught of terrible news, it can feel absurd to work on applications of virtual or augmented reality. We don’t seem to have a handle on, much less agree upon, our base reality. Moreover, it’s no secret that in its current state, the internet can be an inhospitable place for many people. So looking ahead, how does that impact our role in designing these new layers of reality? In this talk, Di discusses the ethical and inclusive challenges of VR/AR’s spatial medium.
