    Salar SHAHNA

    Creative Director and Co-Founder of World VR Forum

    As a filmmaker, creating a sense of immersion for my audience is a daily challenge. It’s the essence of cinema. Making believe. This how the viewer begins to care. With VR I have discovered for the first time a new language that allows to go deeper in that sense. This why I decided to create the World VR Forum. To celebrate this new form of expression that humans will adopt and cherish for the years to come.


    Philosophising futurist, computer scientist & creative technologist

    What is virtual reality’s role in the future evolution of human consciousness?

    A predictive timeline of the next 50 years: The Good, The Weird and The WTF?


    Jerry Tang

    Robotics Engineer

    As a young passionate robotics engineer, Jerry is able to develop hardware and software integrated systems. He was a part of a team that introduced FIRST Robotics Competition into Western Australia. He now works on Azure Frontier, the company he created for next generation UAV development. This time, he will introduce his latest project to the audience.

    Motion sickness is common when using VR devices due to the disconnect between the motion simulated and the real-world. This problem has made it difficult to enjoy any VR related activities including gaming and 360 videos. By using a multi-axis motion seat, we're able to address this problem.
