It’s A Livin’ Thing
Virtual reality already brings about a layer of immersion into an experience by design. When you put on a headset, you are transported into a new world and able to have incredible experiences. But now volumetric capture technology is bringing that even further beyond. Through 3D video data of real-world objects and environment, we can create life-like interactive virtual spaces to explore and experience.
Today, we talk to Nonny de la Peña, also known as the “godmother of virtual reality” and is widely recognized for her innovative work in the XR space. Through the REACH platform, users can create and share immersive VR experiences with tools to make that content. We discuss her start in journalism and how she found her way into virtual reality, and her works like the “Hunger in Los Angeles” VR documentary to see how extended reality solutions can deliver unique experiences unlike any other.
