Children and VR: Emerging Possibilities and Challenges

Tuesday, 19 September 2017 - 9:00am
Princess Anne Theatre, BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly, London
Our expert panel discusses the impact of Virtual Reality on children and explores where future research on VR’s effects might lead.

Our panel presents the latest research on children's engagement with VR devices and content and, taking into consideration issues of interest, suitability and health & safety, we explore how children respond to VR content, presented alongside findings from initial health and safety testing.  The panel also explores the results of VR research with adults, and how the effects of VR across the generations can affect the future direction of the industry.

Dr Dylan Yamada-Rice - Senior Research Manager, Dubit
