Is Virtual Reality A Good Idea? with Open Senses and FuturePlay

PRESENTED BY OPEN SENSES & FUTUREPLAY

Open Senses & FuturePlay plan to turn up the heat a little when they propose the question “Is Virtual Reality actually a good idea?!” to a panel of tech experts and VR specialists.

OPEN SENSES

A weekend dedicated to the senses. A festival of art exhibitions, live events and performances, sensory journeys and walks, open studios and labs, and a ground-breaking symposium. Partners include: National Gallery, Institute of Philosophy, Moorfields Eye Hospital, 4160 Tuesdays, Room One and more.

FUTUREPLAY

futureplay (formerly the Edinburgh Digital Entertainment Festival) is a month-long festival of live performances, installations, experiences and workshops, all of which explore and inspire new ideas that blend technology and art. The festival runs from 3-27 August in collaboration with Assembly Festival and alongside the Edinburgh International Festival, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
