Virtual Reality has already shown to have huge potential in almost every industry, from education and healthcare to journalism and activism. Unfortunately, the tools and resources to build in VR can be incredibly expensive and time-consuming, but it doesn’t have to be. In this session, attendees will learn how to create, build, and start incorporating the power of VR in their work immediately by learning the basics of A-frame (a free and easy programming language, users can use to create and publish VR worlds in their browser) and creating a 360-film with smartphones.
