Research VR Podcast - The Science & Design of Virtual Reality
Summary: The Podcast behind the Science and Design of Virtual Reality and Spatial Computing. By combining our background in Cognitive Science and VR Research, we break down important Neuroscience to extract Design principles. Each week, we feature the companies, founders, and researchers that are shapers of this Immersive Tech Industry.

Nick Lievendag from 3D Scan Expert joins Az and Petr to talk about all things Photogrammetry, 3D Scanning, and the future of 3D reality capture.
Aldis Sipolins, Head of Virtual Reality & Game Design at IBM joins Az and Petr to talk about Neuroscience, Brain training games, biofeedback, the potential of eye tracking and BCI's.
Teslasuit CEO Dimitri Mikhalchuk joins Petr to talk about the science behind how their Full Body Haptic VR suit works. Thank you Philip Wogart from the VRARA Hamburg Chapter for making this episode happen!
Designers Martin Schubert and Barrett Fox join the Podcast to talk about their biweekly Design Sprints at Leap Motion, working on one of the most important aspects of VR and AR. Apologies in advance for the non-ideal audio quality for this episode.
Creating beautiful, human-like animations in 2D apps has always had a STEEP learning curve. Today, we talk to NVRMIND's cofounders Milan and Dario about AnimVR: a tool to create animations completely with your hands.

Filmmaker Asad J Malik, Founder of 1RIC join Az and Petr to talk about his latest film, Terminal 3, debuting at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival. He goes into depth talking about "Context being key" for AR storytelling, VR films in film festivals, and simulation/simulacra theories.
Az and Petr discuss the new VR and AR hardware they saw at GDC and IEEE VR, including Varjo, Magic Leap, ODG AR glasses, Beat Saber, and Electronauts!
UploadVR Editor Ian Hamilton joins Az and Petr to talk about early VR stories, shares his impressions of the all-in-one headsets like Oculus Santa Cruz, and discusses the new Magic Leap investment and the potential issues they're facing. Our main topic of the week was Stanford professor Jeremy Bailenson's article about the potential of VR being used by perpetrators of mass shootings.
Az talks to the expert Audio Engineers and Researchers Sally Kellaway and Kaushik Sunder on what the benefits of 3D audio are, where they make the most impact in VR/AR, and what improvements need to be made in the industry moving forward.
Behavioral Scientist Jessica Outlaw is an outspoken Social Scientist in the field of VR User Experience Design. She recently published an Inductive Qualitative study with Beth Duckles, PhD about the experiences of "Millennial, tech-savvy women" in Social VR applications (Altspace, High Fidelity, Facebook Spaces, etc). In this episode, we talk embodied cognition, implicit biases, gender differences in social behavior and navigation in an unfamiliar environment, as well as the questions the paper raises up about inclusivity and approachability in design.
HOT NEWS OFF THE PRESS. EXTRA EXTRA Az talks about his impressions of the Vive Pro, looking at high resolution photogrammetry with supersampling. Petr shares his thoughts on the Meta 2 devkit as an enterprise developer, and the need to have to sell his colleagues on the idea of AR.
Az is joined by Vasanth Mohan and Hassan Karaouni, founders of the popular educational Youtube channel, FusedVR. We discuss the Logitech VR keyboard, OpenXR initiatives, problems with WebVR, as well as learning how to be a VR developer! Recorded: Nov, 2017
Az and Petr are joined by Amy Lynn and Andrew Abedian from Survios to talk about their upcoming new game: Sprint Vector, a game ALL about running in VR. a Movement and locomotion have always been a big topic of debate in VR, especially since many people are prone to motion sickness when the visuals don't match the state of their bodies, so in this episode, we dive into HOW Survios has managed to achieve what was once thought to be sacrilege: SPRINTING IN VR.
