Future of Work: Virtual & Augmented Realities with @evapascoe

Eva Pascoe came and gave us some insights particularly into recent uses of Virtual and Augmented Realities in retail.

Discussions afterwards included:

  • Do we need physical body to commune with others?
  • AR/VR very different
  • How immersive does the reality have to be to be virtual?
  • How will we avoid aggravating the Digital Divide?  (ie that those who do not have the technology access to the technology become left behind. VR on NHS?
  • (Virtually) When tomorrow is as immersive as today, how will we know what is real?
  • Getting Lost
  • Learning to see our hands in VR.  VR adapting to us.  Embodiment & VR
  • How do you know you are not in VR now?!
  • Will we be able to interact with other real things in the virtual way? If so what does that mean for our future?
  • The visual/sound bias – not immersion for physical beings until touch, smell, taste?

At all of these sessions, we’ve ended in a circle asking people to record their reflections.  Listening to this should give you a better feel of what it was like in the room.

If you were there and have written about the experience, do let me know.
