Hacking Your Senses

New Frontier Gateway
136 Heber Ave.
Saturday, January 23, noon–1:30 p.m.

Immersive technologies like virtual reality are aimed at creating experiences that are meant to feel real. Our brains trick our bodies into feeling as if we’re in another place, experiencing something that is in fact an illusion. As experiences become more lifelike, we also begin to learn more about the human condition and how our bodies and emotions respond to specific stimuli. How does VR make us feel more empathy, fear, delight, and adventure? How do we blur the lines of reality, and what are the implications? Learn from experts Aaron Koblin (co-founder and CTO, Vrse), Mike Woods (co-founder and CCO, White Rabbit VR), Dražen Bošnjak (founder and composer, Q Department and Mach 1), Paul Raphaël (co-founder, Felix & Paul Studios), and Caecilia Charbonnier (co-founder, Artanim) in a discussion moderated by Charles Melcher (founder, Future of Storytelling).
