Having overseen the development of prototypes for over 200 concepts, Bernard has learned a lot about the best practices for rapid prototyping with game technology. A recurring pursuit while prototyping for VR is to find a way of interaction that feels 'natural' - as opposed to 'realistic'. By using more intuitive ways of interaction, this can be taken to a new level in VR. Bernard will talk about what he and his team have learned over the years, and will show how these best practices apply to VR projects using a few related project cases.
The latest race in build-once deploy everywhere frameworks is happening around the world of XR. Several frameworks promise to support both AR and VR experiences. The current leading frameworks are MRTK, XRTK and the Unity XR SDK.
In this talk, I will address the three most common questions that developers are asking about these frameworks:
Which XR framework should you choose?
What are the differences?
Why do you even need a framework?
Is this a case where eventually one framework will rule them all? Or will we continue to see the proliferation of more and more specialized frameworks?
In this session, Will Humphrey, Studio Director at Sugar Creative (a Co-Owner of Fictioneers), will walk through how the features of Unity’s Mixed and Augmented Reality Studio (MARS) have underpinned the development of both Dr. Seuss’s ABC AR and Wallace & Gromit: The Big Fix Up, including how the new toolkit has affected their overall workflow.
When AR and MR devices are released the race for the best immersive content showcase is on - how else should you convince clients and customers to invest in this new technology? This talk aims to outline best practices on how to create a mixed reality platform that actually sells. You will learn how our diverse team of XR developers designed, prototyped, iterated, tested and finally released the immersive collaborative MR platform for interior design that helps brands and customers alike to "test drive" their home make-over.
