Session Name:

Empathy in Wonderland


Empathy, a word often used yet little understood is critical component of any XR experience and separates XR from all other media. This talk covers three empathy deepening XR techniques distilled from 4 years of research from thousands of players in our own XR Lab for Google, Hidden Path, Survios, 'Beat Saber', 'Fragments' (HoloLens), and 3 unannounced titles: Empathy Hurdles, Empathy Bridges, and Empathy Channels. Whether it's to reduce grieving; create branded emotions from Apple; or bring to life deeply rich narrative spaces for the Harry Potter IP; these three empathy techniques double your XR creation's ability to create emotional depth.
