Virtual reality (VR) is no longer the expensive, cumbersome exercise it once was and will soon become commercially available. What games can we play with VR? What are the real time applications? What does VR enable us to do that is new?
Stefan Greuter from the Centre for Game Design Research at RMIT University will provide an overview of the history of VR, the challenges of VR, current and future applications, and share his experiences with the medium based on his work on two VR works: PureLand Unwired and Out Of Space.
