Building Great VR AR Products Class - LA

RSVP here

DESCRIPTION

Reserve your spot at our next class of the VRARA Training Program, taught by VR/AR Product Lead and VRARA Mentor Sami Ramly.

Building Great VR/AR Products: the Art of Product Management for Emerging Technologies


About the Class:

This class dives deep into Product best practices for anyone looking to make VR or AR and hoping to get people actually using their products - after the demo novelty has worn off. Topics to be covered include Product-Market Fit, Product Strategy, Product Development, Design, Prototyping, Monetization, Customer Development, Growth, Analytics, and more. All examples will be focused on VR/AR but some parallels will be drawn with adjacent industries. There will also be valuable learnings and applications for startups and companies in emerging technologies in general.

The typical audience includes (but is not restricted to) professionals who identify as makers, creatives, builders, creators and anyone involved in the product development process (entrepreneurs, executives, engineers, designers, product managers, developers, producers, directors, etc). If you're a marketer, evangelist, sales wizard or promoter of a VR/AR product, you will find it useful to learn what makes competing products great, good or bad, why your product with high traction could suffer in retention, and why the VR/AR product cemetery is full of has-beens and could-haves.

About Sami Ramly:

Sami Ramly is a VR/AR Product Lead and member of the select Product Leaders group at Product That Counts in Silicon Valley. He is currently the VR Product Management Lead at Wevr, the renowned VR startup specializing in producing and distributing award-winning VR experiences (2 out of 10 Best VR of 2016, according to TechCrunch). Sami heads the Product efforts for Transport, the native network for VR creatives and their audience. Previously, he worked in Product on 3D Printing & 3D Scanning at Microsoft, where he shipped Microsoft's first 3D Scan app for Windows 10. He also held several other roles in engineering, business and product management at Silicon Valley startups and accelerators, including StartX. Sami is a VR/AR Mentor & Faculty at VRARA, as well as a Mentor at Stanford, UCLA, USC, SIGGRAPH, LIFE, LebNet and others. He has co-authored an IEEE publication and has spoken about VR & AR at CES, Digital Hollywood, Plug & Play, Hero City, UC Berkeley, UCLA Anderson, Otis, and many VRARA events. He also sits on the Executive Board of Predictera and the Advisory Board of Rabbit Hole VR, Stanford's VR/AR maker community, featured in Business Insider as a place where “the next big thing in VR could come”.

World Virtual & Augmented Reality Sports Innovation Summit - SF

For discounted passes, contact us info@thevrara.com

Fan Engagement, Elite Performance, Broadcast Strategy, Brand Development

2017 is shaping up to be the breakthrough year for Immersive Technology and Sport. With a market potential in excess of $100Billion, the opportunities for growth are enormous.

From live VR broadcasts and fan engagement experiences to VR training, billions of fans and athletes across the world will engage with immersive sports content. Despite much impressive early innovation there is still a paucity of content for the regular sports fan to consume. This is in large part due to the technical challenges and costs sports organisations face in generating VR content and experiences and the barriers consumers still face in accessing VR. The key question facing the sports industry is understanding which immersive technologies will come out on top, and then identifying what the most effective strategies to implement and monetize them may be.

The Summit brings together the senior stakeholders from the biggest clubs, associations, athletes, broadcasters and brands alongside the leaders in technology, innovation and big data to identify how to activate, apply and monetize immersive tech in the sports arena.

Not so far in the future, doctors might prescribe a virtual beach vacation to calm aches and pains, in lieu of taking a pill. Insurance companies might offer scenic tours of Icelandic fjords to lower blood pressure, instead of doubling up on drugs. Psychiatrists might treat social phobia by immersing patients in a virtual dinner party.

It’s starting to happen right now because of virtual reality (VR) – the mind-bending technology that offers immersive, multisensory environments that nudge our brains into thinking we are somewhere else.

For decades, scientists have been discovering the surprising health benefits of VR for ailments ranging from burn injuries, to stroke, to posttraumatic stress. Thousands of studies reveal that VR has an uncanny ability to block pain, calm nerves and boost mental health – all without drugs and their unwanted side effects. But the technology has been too expensive, unreliable and unwieldy for the research to translate beyond the pages of academic journals and doctoral dissertations.

The speakers include VRARA Digital Health Committee members.  We have some all-stars showing up to this important event!

"Collaborative learning in VR Healthcare"

Medical VR applications, such as augmented vision surgery, remote treatment and distance diagnosis, are becoming increasingly common worldwide. In Singapore, new techniques are being pioneered that go further to help provide non-invasive and completely safe outcomes without using established trial-practice-and-error approaches.

Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) has teamed up with Side Effects Asia Pacific to work on VR technology systems for advanced healthcare and medical training.

The new systems will enable trainees to experience realistic 3D medical emergency scenarios, allowing digital feedback and overlay information to be integrated with existing medical images. In other words, trainees will be able to experience and practice fully immersive, on-the-spot decision-making scenarios during the resuscitation of critically ill or severely injured virtual patients.

In this upcoming session, TK Ng, CEO of Side Effects Asia Pacific, will share more about their insights and experiences developing cutting edge healthcare and medical VR simulations with the new Gear VR Controller as a key interaction device. He will also give strategic tips and advice on how to deliver and scale cutting-edge medical simulations to the entire healthcare and medical industry in the most cost-effective and practical way.

VR Connects San Francisco 2017

SF Connect VR event.jpg

VR Connects San Francisco (June 27th-28th 2017) is a brand new event for the VR/AR industry created by Steel Media, the team behind the PG Connects series of conferences, Pocket Gamer, PG.biz, The Virtual Report, and the Global VR Challenge.

The event will bring together 500 delegates from across the VR/AR/MR industry (with a focus on hardware manufacturers, entertainment/game/educational/experiential developers, publishers, investors, media, and more). It will combine a lively expo space with 2 days of focused conference tracks spread over 4 tracks and covering the key questions facing the industry (global trends, technical and design issues, monetisation & business strategy, future technologies).

While information and inspiration are very important, the core of any show is who you meet and with that in mind we have a dedicated ‘Pitch & Match’ meeting system for free to all delegates to plan their own meetings, after hours networking events plus two dedicated pitching events (the VR Indie Pitch and the VR Speedmatch sessions designed to connect developers with publishers, media and platforms/stores) open to applications.
