Industry Trends Panel: Virtual and Augmented Reality



Virtual Reality is a technology that has threatened to be vaporware since the 1990s. Now that it’s here, what are we using it for? What should we be using it for?

Industry professionals and visionaries at the forefront of using Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) will chat about current and future projects in a panel discussion facilitated by Dr Jonathan Duckworth, Director of Creative Interventions, Arts and Rehabilitative Technology Lab.
