Bernhard's TEDxEastVan talk

It was such an honour and amaz­ing expe­ri­ence to present at TEDxEastVan on September 16th! Below are some first pic­tures, the video will be released later in October and will be posted here.

My TEDx talk was titled “Could Virtual Reality Make us More Human” and included some of our recent research and exam­ples from my teach­ing on immer­sive envi­ron­ments. Here’s some of the ideas in a nutshell:

Virtual real­ity is becom­ing increas­ingly acces­si­ble and afford­able, and offers the unique oppor­tu­nity to pro­vide first-hand and embod­ied expe­ri­ences. How could we use this poten­tial to go beyond enter­tain­ment and gaming, for cre­at­ing pos­i­tive or even trans­for­ma­tional expe­ri­ences we might oth­er­wise not be able to have? And how could we democ­ra­tize the medium and put this pow­er­ful tech­nol­ogy into the cre­ative hands of more people?
