Two shorter talks this month!  Matt Summers and Tommy Sunders from Pixel Farm share their recent learnings successes, and fun failures with Mixed Reality video recording and User Interface/Interaction design for VR.


Mixed Reality Video Production

How do yo show Virtual Reality to someone who’s never experienced it? MR becoming a very popular way to sell VR, but there’s still a major lack of tools. Learn about Pixel Farm’s early experiments and new/upcoming techniques looking to make MR more accessible to developers and streamers.


UX in Virtual Reality

Eatable interfaces, teleportation, flying cats, and magic helmets – Welcome to the wild west of virtual reality, where traditional menus are usually the worst option and there are no established best practices. Less that a year into commercially available VR, what are the emerging trends in UX and interaction design?
