A Technical Deep Dive into Tactile Virtual Objects

Creating tactility in virtual worlds is vital to the suspension of disbelief. The speakers look at how to build touch into the new frontier of virtual experiences, exploring the technicalities and practicalities of using real-world objects to build a human and playful squidgiverse. Plus, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Assisted Performance Coordinator talks about making the physicality and beauty of Dream’s virtual forest accessible.
