Drawing on my 25 year history of creating meaningful virtual reality experiences, I will discuss the techniques I have developed to help evoke emotional responses from participants in such spaces. These include methods to allow a narrative structure in a space where the visitor has free will to go anywhere and do anything, a patented scent collar I designed to bring the evocative power of smell to VR, and 3D and infrasonic audio techniques to increase emotional connection.
About the speaker
Dr. Jacquelyn Morie
With degrees in both art and computer science, Dr. Morie has 25 years experience in developing innovative techniques for rich, emotionally evocative virtual reality (VR) environments. As part of this pioneering work, she invented a scent collar to bring the emotional power of smell to immersive experiences, and developed new types of functions for VR, such as connections to multiple sensor and feedback systems to make VR more effective. Dr. Morie spent 13 years as a Sr. Research Scientist at USC’s Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT), which she helped found.
