#CubeLearn is a Lunch & Learn event presented by the Cube in partnership with industry experts in AR/VR/MR.


Join us on Thursday, October 25th, from 12:00-1:00 pm.

The Cube has the mandate to help position Vancouver as a global excellence center for XR technology and, along with its education committee, the Cube is committed to helping current professionals in big talent pools such as gaming, VFX, and tech, to sustainably develop their skills and knowledge into VR/AR/MR technologies.


TOPIC OF THE MONTH

Design and implementation of hand/object interaction for VR:

Interacting with objects with your hands in VR is key to truly immersive VR experiences but there are a number of design and implementation challenges to tackle to get good results. This talk will discuss grabbing, dropping, throwing, sliding, screwing and other hand based interactions we've implemented for our VR surgical training and the design and implementation lessons we learned along the way. There will be some Unity specific implementation details but most of the content is relevant to any engine.


SPEAKER

Matt Newport - Co-Founder/CTO at OssoVR

Matt is a veteran game developer with over 15 years professional game development experience, both at large companies including EA and THQ, as well as smaller independent studios. He was an early backer of Oculus' Kickstarter campaign. He uses his Psychology degree to create VR experiences with high levels of presence & immersive interactions.
