Session Name: Mixed Reality Racing Fuses Deeper AR Experience with Physical Gameplay
Speaker(s): Daniel Doptis
Company Name(s): Velan Studios
Track / Format: Design
Overview: VR has begun to break beyond novelty and find its footing with deeper gameplay experiences, but what about AR? Wearable AR devices are still limited in their capabilities and have yet to go mainstream and mobile AR applications, while easily accessible, are often limited by requiring the player to manage the device as the camera and often fall short of becoming more than a gimmick or technical demo. nnUsing mixed reality, Velan Studios introduced a completely new way to experience the joy of kart racing with Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit. So, what does it take to transpose Mario Kart to your living room? This presentation will go through the core features and concepts used to elevate AR beyond a novelty.
