Workshop 3: Cardboard VR: Building Low Cost VR Experiences

Over the last year Virtual Reality (VR) has become very popular due to the availability of the Occulus Rift and other Virtual Reality Head Mounted Displays (HMD). Google released the lost cost Cardboard viewer, allowing almost any mobile phone to be able to be used for a VR experience. The goal of this workshop is teach attendees how to create their own VR application using the Cardboard viewer hardware and Unity3D software. The main objective is that by the end of the workshop attendees should feel confident to be able to create VR experiences.


Workshop 4: Emotional Design: Designing a Product that People Love

Borrys Hasian

We’ve seen and we’ve been using products that people use a lot. It’s not just attractive, it’s fun and pleasurable, it’s also effective and usable. How can we design such product? Understanding what makes an emotional design would help us to have a structured approach in coming up with a product that people love. The workshop will help the participants to understand about the factors what make an emotional design, identify them in other’s product, and come up with ‘emotional design plan’ for their own product.
