The Number One Educational Resource for the Game Industry

Session Name:

Lessons Learned from a Thousand Virtual Worlds

Overview:

Jesse Schell has been teaching the Building Virtual Worlds class at Carnegie Mellon University for over a decade. In that time, his students have created over 1,000 experimental VR worlds. In this talk, through copious examples, he will present lessons learned from watching, guiding, and experiencing these experiments. Lessons span from prototyping (importance of gold spike, find the toy first, do what your tech is good at) to neurology (eye tracking feels like mind control, the magic of mirror neurons) to showmanship (escalation blows people's minds, liveness is magical).
