Event description
Intro to XR Immersion: Imagination, Immersion, and Presence

About this Event

With the COVID-19 pandemic in full swing and the restrictions on Social-distancing, MAGES is now going VIRTUAL!

“Reality has always been too small for the human imagination. We’re always trying to transcend.”—Brenda Laurel

XR is an incredibly powerful new tool for bridging the gap between imagination and reality. It achieves this most effectively when full immersion occurs, a solid sense of presence exists, and a multi-modal experience looks, feels, and sounds believable. These are foundation concepts to keep top of mind when you’re moving from designing experiences for traditional mediums to designing the magical world of XR.

XR (Extended Reality) represents a large, and actively growing, industry – the application of modern games technology in a wide range of areas around medicine, training, education, security and beyond.

  • The global Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality in Healthcare market size was 580 million US$ and it is expected to reach 2160 million US$ by the end of 2025 (Dataintelo.com)
  • 88% of companies say they are using some form of AR or VR tech in their operations.(Deloitte)
  • According to IDC, spending on AR/VR training will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 46% between 2018 and 2023
  • AR/VR jobs are hot, with demand surging 1,400% in 2019 according to Job site Hired

Experience designers must rise to the challenge. Of course, transitioning from traditional digital platforms to the extended reality (XR)—requires some prep work.

Attend this talk to know more about the facts of the industry, where the future technology is moving, and the opportunity lies for the working professionals and students of this era.
