“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.”

Based in the UK, Paul has been immersed in interactive entertainment for the best part of 27 years and has followed advances in gaming with a passionate fervour. His obsession with graphical fidelity over the years has had him branded a ‘graphics whore’ (which he views as the highest compliment) more than once and he holds a particular candle for the dream of the ultimate immersive gaming experience. Having followed and been disappointed by the original VR explosion of the 90s, he then founded RiftVR.com to follow the new and exciting prospect of the rebirth of VR in products like the Oculus Rift. Paul joined forces with Ben to help build the new Road to VR in preparation for what he sees as VR’s coming of age over the next few years.
  • 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.

    kind of random, but I am doing some research on the history of VR and am looking for great archival content. Does anyone have suggestions?”
