Video Ristretto: Virtual Reality as Used in Our Reality — Aaron Spence

Delivering a conference presentation about the commercial use of virtual reality technology is a pretty thankless task, a bit like trying to demonstrate colour on a black & white television set.

Back at our end of year Direction conference in 2016, Aaron Spence took this on by having his fabulous assistant wear a VR headset as various experiences played out, the vision of which was then shown on the big screen — admittedly 2D but impressive all the same.

It’s also worth noting that quite possibly every person at the conference had a go at using a VR headset from the several made available by Aaron’s company Panedia expressly for the purpose.

The video of Aaron’s talk is about half an hour long and really demonstrates how far VR has already penetrated into a range of commercial and other uses.
