“Help! I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up”: Tackling Vertigo in VR

Talk at MinneWebCon 2018 on April 23, 2018

Movement in VR when not at roomscale is tricky and can often cause motion sickness in players. In this talk my brother Henry Megarry and I went through our experiments with different input techniques for the HTC Vive in our quest to solve this problem. We talked about our successes and failures of using virtual ski poles to fly, using a Dance Dance Revolution mat as a controller and more. At the end of the talk we had people try out our creations!
