VR is there, isn´t it? This panel will discuss hands-on experiences of some who moved first into VR - without asking others for permission! So, how did stuff go in the last year?What about motivation and risk, which design and tech choices went great, which badly? Discuss with Chet Faliszek, VR evangelist at Valve, Julie Heyde from VR Unicorns (“Selfie Tennis”), Alan Ladavac from Croteam (“Talos Principle”) and Kayla Kinnunen from Roadhouse Interactive where VR is moving and learn how their experiences in tech, design and … life shaped their perspectives and expectations. Moderated by Tobias Kopka, Program Director of Respawn.
