Lex’s Facebook Group, Virtual Reality in Brisbane
Lex has been watching the reemergence of what has been called the ‘final medium’ since the beginning of 2014. By December of that year he launched the Brisbane VR Club which strives to support and educate the local community by connecting virtual reality developers with public outlets. With a obsessive passion for VR and it’s potential to disrupt education, entertainment, rehabilitation and retail sectors he is driven to make VR an everyday, life enhancing technology.
Rewriting the Rules of Narrative: Inspired by a talk given by Alex Kutulos at the recent TEDxUQ event, this presentation will be on current examples of cinematic experiences in Virtual Reality. The session will cover the present and future applications, as well as insight into opportunities for this technology to be delivered within the educational curriculum.
