“Virtual Reality Applications in UX – Why, What and How VR”

Technology wise, the history of Virtual Reality went way back before the 1950s. With the rapid improvement of the technology, VR is becoming more accessible in present time. Recent advances in Virtual Reality have allowed to create and simulate a more immersive and contextual-richer environment, so that consumers are able to “experience” products and services in a more agile setup.

In her talk, Maffee will demonstrate how VR technology can be used in different types of UX studies and domains, why we should use VR, how we can use it, the potentials and the limitations.
