Visualization Friday Forum

Over the past couple of years, virtual reality has seen quite a resurgence of interest thanks to hardware advances. In addition, augmented and mixed reality technologies have begun to prove themselves useful across various industries. In this talk, I'll discuss how the recent rise of virtual reality arcade storefronts is contributing to the acceptance of these technologies in everyday life. I'll then explore the breadth of applications that are transforming how the average consumer experiences everyday life and how visual representations of everything from business meetings to interior design to music are rapidly becoming immersive.
