The next big speaker that has been announced for this year’s VRTGO event happening in Newcastle, UK during November is no other than NASA itself, where it will be discussing how virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR).
Doug Ellison, a Producer in NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) will be spreaking about some of the lab’s recent work using MR. Carri Cunliffe, VRTGO Director, said in a press release: “We are eager to hear more about how JPL is using VR, AR and MR. They are renowned for using technology in innovative ways and pushing the boundaries of what it can achieve.”
“Destination Mars will be the first large roll out of an MR project in a visitor attraction setting, we can’t wait to see how the public respond to using cutting edge exploration tools to walk on the red planet. I’m looking forward to sharing the lessons we learn with the VR community” said Doug Ellison in a press release. “The language of UX and UI in the VR world is still emerging and evolving. Meeting other creators in the space is a vital part of defining that language so that our users become familiar and comfortable with these amazing new technologies.”
NASA will be speaking at VRTGO on 9th November of this year in the Baltic Centre For Contempotary Art in Newcastle Gateshead, UK.
