Help I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up: Tackling Vertigo in VR
Session scheduled at 3:30-4:20 in Room 3 (Ski-U-Mah)
Movement in VR when not at roomscale is tricky and can often cause motion sickness in players. Siblings Martha and Henry Megarry will go through their experiments with different input techniques for the HTC Vive in their quest to solve this problem. They’ll talk about their successes and failures of using virtual ski poles to fly, using a Dance Dance Revolution mat as a controller and more! Try out their creations at the end of the talk (equipment/space permitting.)
Takeaways: Attendees will learn about what works and what doesn’t work for movement in VR. They will gain inspiration and techniques that they can use in their own VR projects.
Attendee Skill Level: Minimal- we will be showing/explaining everything we are talking about
