Manchester Tech Festival - Utilising Immersive Technology vs ‘The metaverse’
Instead of just saying ‘you need to be on this metaverse’, why don't we take a moment to appreciate new technology and what it can bring us?
The idea of an interconnected superhighway, where users digitally traverse and purchase goods in virtual reality, has gained significant hype - but we're a long way from that moment, and it's wrong optic to view the world through when we are experiencing unprecedented social, economic, and environmental change. Instead, we can craft immersive experiences that have meaning, experiences that tap into the true power of immersive technology: the ability to connect us to other people, embody other characters, take us on magical journeys, and most importantly? Allow us to see life from another person's view. Rather than just 'doing it for the sake of doing it' - join me on a journey as I lay out the foundations of immersive technology, how it can deepen human understanding, drive empathy, and wow us. Learn how to tap the true energy of a new medium, without the hype - it's already amazing!
