This talk will feature Timoni West (Lead Designer at Unity Labs) and Ruth Bram (Associate Producer at Facebook Oculus) talking about the future of Design - how design works when you have a whole new paradigm away from the screen!

Immersive design within virtual and augmented reality redefines user input, and this lightning talk session will cover different perspectives for bringing us closer than ever before to technology. How does interaction, visual, and experience design change when moving from a single screen to an entire 3D world?
