Design Talk 17. Virtual reality special; experiencing HTC Vive with Greg Taylor of Tigerspike


This special edition of the MEX podcast takes you hands-on with the user experience of virtual reality, with bonus photos and videos.  In episode 12 we went in-depth on the design principles of augmented, virtual and mixed reality with Greg Taylor of Tigerspike.  When Greg took delivery of his HTC Vive – arguably the most immersive virtual reality experience available to consumers today – he invited Design Talk hosts Marek Pawlowski and Alex Guest to spend an afternoon exploring it in Tigerspike’s London studio.  The podcast recounts first-hand impressions of the Vive and expands into a discussion of how this new form of digital experience might change design agency strategy and individual practitioner skills.
