Technology has a history of fundamentally shifting the ways people interact with information and with one another. We’ve seen it with the invention of radio and television, and more recently through the evolution of the Internet. We are approaching the dawn of yet another shift: the introduction of virtual, augmented, and other enhanced realities.

In this keynote session, you will take a journey into the coming world of virtual reality (VR) and explore how VR is shaping the future of content. Using his work with Oculus Story Studio as an example, Maxwell Planck will examine why new technologies require us to challenge our assumptions of what we do in order to fully explore the potential of what we could do. You will learn why new technologies require us to rethink our current narratives, and how virtual reality is changing the definition of “story” itself.
