    Touch is a critical VR component. And as demand for immersive VR gaming experiences becomes mainstream, developers will need to learn how to design advanced haptic experiences to match the quality of the visuals and audio in today's gaming platforms. Previously relegated to coding, haptics for gaming has entered the design space. With new tools, game designers can create more complex and dynamic haptic feedback for VR gaming platforms. In this session, Matt Tullis will present important concepts to keep in mind as developers come up-to-speed with using touch to create immersive experiences.

    Takeaway

    Attendees will learn:
    • Model for thinking about haptic value in the continuum creating presence and immersion
    • Basic principles of haptic design – clear association, low latency feedback, short duration, etc.
    • Sample of types of haptic effects that can be used for certain genre of game design
    • General design limitations for haptics
