Welcome, this is a special event featuring leap motion! All attendees will receive 10% off discount codes. Five developer kits will also be given away. For demos we have exclusive content not yet available to the public.

Crafting VR you can Touch:

What happens when we completely reimagine fundamental digital interactions? With a holistic approach to hands in VR/AR, Barrett Fox takes a VR creator-centric path from platform to emerging UX design to tools built to task. After a quick overview of Leap Motion's tech stack, we'll tease out the inherent qualities in this new input platform, and how it leads us to new, vital interactions and approaches. Next, step through a design process informed by cutting-edge VR interaction projects, and learn about the key technical and UX challenges of crafting for rapidly evolving targets with stringent performance requirements. Finally, a look at VR developer tools for GUIs tailored for VR and physically simulated object manipulation.
