    AR is in limbo: fundamentally powerful, but always in the shadow of its older sibling VR. This talk discusses the creation of "grounded" mixed reality experiences: those that become a part of real world, and strive to bypass the "sticker effect" endemic to much of the current AR field. Head of Studio, John Austin, reflects and breaks down how A Stranger Gravity has approached designing grounded mixed reality, building spaces that are neither virtual or real, but somewhere in between.


    Attendees will take-away design and technical knowledge about "grounded" mixed reality experiences, those that merge the virtual with the digital, and how to avoid the "sticker effect". Attendees will also gain broad experience in designing for the vast hodgepodge of different of AR/mixed reality platforms that exist today.

    Intended Audience

    This talk is geared towards those interested in designing games and experiences for any AR/mixed reality platform. The talk will focus on fairly specific design topics among a select few AR/mixed reality platforms, so familiarity with AR/mixed reality platforms as they exist today will be helpful.
