XR Interaction Design and Urban Tech

 

The impact of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) - often combined under the term XR - on our daily lives is widely expected to increase in the near future. In this talk I will discuss the role of XR in the field of urban tech, and some of the technical and interaction design challenges involved. This talk will also present the design of a syllabus for urban tech students wishing to integrate XR into their practice.
