STRATA is a responsive VR experience driven by biometrics, created by The Mill. It tunes in to your heart rate, breathing, stress levels, and brain waves to remix a generative game-engine world. The stunning immersive experience connects us to our own emotional state, teaching us to calm and focus our minds.
Kevin Mack describes the creation of Blortasia and Zen Parade, his abstract virtual reality art experiences that explore the spatial presence of VR as an aesthetic medium in and of itself.

Control software with your mind. Neurable’s brain-computer interface (BCI) combines novel neurophysiological insights with proprietary machine-learning algorithms. The technology allows for real-time, intent-driven interactions that address many of the pain points associated with extended reality (XR) devices. This presentation discusses Neurable’s BCI and its necessary role for XR.
IRIDiuM+ enables immersive storytelling in VR enhanced with non-linear sequenced sound, touch, and light. It extends IRIDiuM to allow branching streams of full-motion light-field video depending on user actions in real time. The deep-media aim is to allow users to physically enter rendered movies with novel non-linear storytelling capability. With the ability to change the outcome of the story through touch and physical movement, users make choices with consequences in immersive movies. The interactive narrative guides users through the immersive story with lighting and spatial audio design and integrates both walkable and air-haptic actuators.
