 Applied Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality Full Day | Intermediate

This course addresses virtual reality from the end-user's perspective and focuses on "what we can do" with VR technology, not "how to develop" the technology, and provides attendees with criteria to identify whether or not VR technology might be a useful tool in their working environments. The course covers several working VR applications in academia and industry, and reviews their design processes.

Who Should Attend
Engineers, designers, scientists, product developers, artists, managers, and anyone interested in obtaining a general understanding of the concepts and design methodologies for effective virtual reality applications.
