Presence has joined forces with AIGA to convene leaders designing in a new medium: immersive reality. Business and social sector leaders will show us how immersive reality has transcended the world of video-games to create new real-world possibilities for people and organizations. We’ll explore immersive reality’s power to drive empathy and behavior change – and the implications for the world of design. Join us as trailblazers from Unity, Mindshow, Heavy Projects, and Atheer discuss their pioneering work in the field.Panelists: Timoni West – Principal Designer at Unity Labs Jim Toepel – Senior Virtual Experience Designer at Mindshow Soulaiman Itani the founder and CEO of Atheer Chris Nunes – Partner, Director of Product at Heavy Projects Will Byrne, Director of Strategy, Presence (moderator).
