VRLA Summer Expo 2016: You Are Here, Building Believable Spaces in VR. What does it mean to BE somewhere? VR has the power to deliver experiences that range from the mundane and practical to new worlds that push our imaginations to the limit. Key to making these experiences believable, however, is both understanding how we, as humans, process and interpret the world around us and using that to inform how we craft VR experiences. I'll discuss how we take what we know about human experience and the brain and apply that to create VR content with the power to truly take you places.
