This was one of several big-attraction panels at Immersed. This featured John Gaeta (Lucasfilm), David Traub (Epiphany Film Fund), Neil Trevett (President Khronos Group), and Professor Michael Page (OCADU). People like to say that The Matrix and The Lawnmower Man got them excited about VR. Well, here are some of the top minds behind those movies among other thought provokers. They sit, they talk, they debate and discuss where things are headed at Immersed!
Topics covered include the ethics of VR, the industry's future, privacy issues, and so much more. Lots of fun!
For those that missed Immersed 2014, worry not! Immersed 2015 is going to be happening October 4-6, 2015. This, and we still have a lot (A LOT) of content left from the inaugural conference.
Howard Rose, Co-Founder of Firsthand Technology, did a great TEDMED talk about VR and health. In it, he explains how virtual reality (VR) has been dismissed as a toy, when it is already helping us with self-healing and personal improvement. Whether it's through helping cope with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or phobias, or encouraging kids to brush their teeth with the appeal of play, VR has its place.
