Abstract:
VR is a fast-growing market worth £1.2 billion by 2020 according to Digital Catapult, a digital technologies agency. However, it’s a fragmented landscape with different devices, platforms and standards.

This talk guides you through the current state of immersive technologies, the opportunities-- and the pitfalls. Learn what we can do with immersive technology today, where it is best applied--and where it will be headed tomorrow. Particular attention will be paid to the impact of 5G, retail-- and, of course, content.
