SMARTlab-Inclusive Design Research Centre Adjunct Professor (APEP/Engineering) and SMARTlab PhD alumna Dr Jacki Morie is hailed internationally as a top leader in VR/AR for the future!
She is co-PI with Professor Lizbeth Goodman of the INCLUDE (Inclusive Design Engineering) research project in development with global partners, and is co-supervisor of several related PhDs in the current SMARTlab Thematic PhD in Inclusive Design and Creative Technology Innovation.
Fresh off the heels of Darren Aronofsky’s 7-figure deal for VR series “Spheres” at Sundance – the largest VR deal to date – VR industry pioneer, Jacki Morie, announces her decision to join Upload Inc. to educate the next generation of VR creators. VR has been a hot topic for the last few years at tech conferences like CES, but it made waves this past week at Sundance, scoring the largest deal ever for a VR project.
In fact, industry insiders believe the Spheres deal could set the standard for Sundance and other VR-friendly festivals in the future. You will soon see more star-studded VR titles (Jessica Chastain is narrating Spheres) as companies feel they can make a profit, even if the viewership doesn’t compare to that of blockbuster titles.
