Virtual Reality & The Future of the Web

What is VR? Why is it special?

  • What will happen when we combine it – spatial, immersive, and performance intensive – with the wild and eclectic web?
  • What creative possibilities will open up?
  • Which web values will be strengthened, interoperability, user privacy, security, etc, and which will change?

Virtual reality is a new medium. It presents us with challenges and opportunities completely unlike anything we’ve encountered in mobile or desktop.

In this talk Josh explores the bleeding edge of the VR web: what you can create today, what the emerging best practices are, and what we as creative professionals can learn (need to learn) from peers in parallel fields like game design, visual effects and architecture.
