VR. AR. These acronyms represent an increasingly prominent movement towards immersive, spatial computing as a modality for interacting with the software that we use on a regular basis. Virtual and augmented reality frameworks are becoming more widely available and the benefits of these technologies are taking shape - which means that we as developers need to be prepared to consider how we integrate these tools into the experiences that we build and anticipate the impact they have on the way that people use software.
This talk focuses on the intersection of immersive technologies with the web, explores real-world applications of virtual and augmented reality across industries, and offers insight into the ethical considerations with developing VR and AR applications.
