Virtual Reality (VR) & UX:
Did you know that Virtual Reality (VR) starts with how one is perceived? This is why it’s so crucial to have a UX design that’s based around this principle from the start.
Designing the right self-representation within a VR system not only determines how someone perceives and navigates in a virtual world, but it also sets the product’s tone.
Social VR applications define your users and change how they are able to interact with each other within the application. It may start with virtual hands, controllers, or an avatar but great self-representation has the potential to increase presence and immersion which results in better user engagement and ultimately encourages your users to keep using your product.
