We are interested in the future of ‘immersive media’ or experiences that make you feel like you are part of the action.  This includes things like augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), 360 video, and other things yet to be developed.  Specifically, we want to know how consumers will use this technology after it is developed further, say in 5-10 years from now.  

For example, with yesterday’s technology, Nintendo’s Wii Tennis made you feel like you were swinging a tennis racket instead of just pushing a button on a controller.  Tomorrow’s technology might make you feel like you are actually on the court at Wimbledon facing off with Serena Williams.

Today’s immersive technology has limits which may be solved in the future…like what if VR headsets weren’t isolating from the world around you, but helped you feel present with other people?  In this hypothetical future, performance is improved, devices are more comfortable to wear, and new social capabilities and software have improved how we interact.

Deliverables

We want to hear your ideas on how you could use VR, AR, or other immersive experiences to improve your daily life or just to have fun!  Do not worry about existing constraints - we are interested in ideas that might only be possible in the next 5-10 years, so the technology will not look like it does today. Push the limits of your imagination!

Specifically, answer the following:

How would you like to use immersive media (such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality,  and 360 video) to enhance your daily life in the future?  

  1. Describe the immersive experience of the future that you will want to use regularly.
    1. What will you be doing?
    2. Where will you use it?  
    3. Who will be around or using it with you?  
    4. When will you use it, or how will it fit into your daily routine?
    5. How immersive will it be?  How much will it draw you out of regular life?
    6. How interactive or passive will you be in the experience?
  2. What will make it more valuable than what you can do with today's technology?
  3. Provide a visual (sketch, video, mock-up, collage, etc.) of how you would like to use this futuristic immersive media, the technology /apparatus that would make it possible, or the way it would make you feel. 
       a. If you aren't comfortable drawing, provide a few reference images from the 
       web that communicate the "essence" of the experience and how you would 
       feel using it. 

**Ideas should focus on consumer applications and not on business applications.
