Accessibility, Research & Therapy in Virtual and Augmented Reality

Virtual & Augmented Reality (VR/AR) Chicago


This month’s meetup will take place at Eight Bit Studios, who will also be providing food and beverage. The topic is Accessibility, Research & Therapy. We’ll be talking about use cases, design considerations and user interaction that take into account accessibility factors, research focused on the design and development of hardware and applications to account for accessibility factors, and therapy that uses VR and AR.

What’s The Format:
The format will remain the same, and the conversation will take us wherever it goes. We’re still going to keep it simple and informal – this meetup is about you, our members, and not the presenters.

6:00-6:30 – Informal networking and introductions.
6:30-7:00 – Panel members will introduce themselves and describe their experience.
7:00-7:30 – Open discussion and Q&A.
7:30-??? – We may wrap up the discussion and return to informal networking and demonstrations, but if the conversation is flowing, the conversation may continue. This is all up to you.
