“Thinking about creating your own VR experiences using the Oculus? Walt Disney Imagineering, being one of the original pioneers in VR in the late 1980s, has in truth never stopped playing with VR and using it. This lecture will focus on some of the basic learnings from the last 20 years, and how it applies to VR experience development today. The talk will focus on HMD and CAVE-based experiences, their design considerations, technical implementation details, and will cover some real-world examples.”

Speaker:

  • Bei Yang – Creative Technical Design Lead, Walt Disney Imagineering

  • Disney sure do a lot of interesting things :) I was actually at Tokyo Disney Resort half a decade ago, and some of the stuff, especially the ghost ride, had me wonder how they actually did stuff :D I guess that’s… magic! Yep.
