Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) systems are beginning to make their presence felt in the leisure and attractions industry in a variety of platforms. As technology continues to evolve, so does our use of this. Can you transport your guest into another world, allow them to interact with the unknown or create a performance canvas that is ever-changing and full or surprise. These technologies can also be integrated into live show production, elevating the overall experience. Watch worlds of reality pop off the set and onto the stage, as performers interact with technology or guests can become part of the show and engage application interfaces to become part of the show.

Through a variety of case studies, participants will learn how VR and AR are evolving, examine the different platforms and their strengths and weaknesses and explore the design principles in creating a successful VR/AR experience.
