How to Design VR/AR for Nontraditional Audiences
You all know how hard it is to make someone feel at ease in VR. One has to deeply understand the user, their expectations and gently guide them through their initial experience. Designing for a single demographic is tough enough; making a good VR experience for two vastly different ones is at a different level. BCLC came to us with exactly this challenge; how do we make a VR gambling game that is innovative enough to attract Millenials to casinos while at the same time bringing traditional casino goers to VR. Join us as we explore the testing methods, design patterns and lessons used to create a thrilling, yet inviting, VR experience.
