View, browse and sort the ever-growing list of VRDC Fall 2017 sessions by pass type, track, and format. Once the session dates and times are announced, you can build your schedule in advance and access it during the show via export or with the Mobile App. Sessions do fill up, so please arrive early to sessions that you would like to attend. Adding a session to your schedule does not guarantee you a seat.
This talk stems from the many awkward and bumbling VR demos the speaker, Serafina Pechan, has experienced (and in some cases given). VR is unique in the development industry because it takes a population of mostly desk workers and asks them to physically interact with others at a near intimate level. When demoing VR, you are often standing very close, touching people's heads, eyes, ears, and hands. With VR there are tactile and body awareness skills needed to provide a graceful and seamless demo experience. This talk demonstrates the best (and worst) practices and strategies to implement (or avoid) during your own VR/AR demos.
Attendees will learn how to apply best practices when giving an in-person VR/AR demo. More importantly, attendees will learn what not to do and strategies to identify how they might be hindering their own demos without even realizing it.
Any company or individual that gives in-person VR/AR demos will benefit from this session. No prerequisite knowledge is necessary for the understanding of this session.
Title: Technical Director & Chair of OpenXR Working Group Company: Epic Games
