Immersive computing technologies offer unique storytelling challenges and opportunities for designers. What kinds of stories lend themselves to AR or VR treatment? How do we help viewers know what’s important in an environment where they control the camera? What can we do to build experiences that are safe and accessible for our audiences?

This session will highlight some of the lessons learned from 3 years of AR/VR experimentation at Knight Lab. We’ll also discuss practical tools for getting started and end with a hands-on mobile AR prototyping exercise so you can start integrating immersive media into your design practice right away.
