Filippas Kotsis, RMA Consulting

As a UX Designer, I have spent the last 4 years defining and refining products and services such as Here Maps, Nokia Music, SkyQ and UBS Neo. On my free time, I dabble with sci-fi, video-games and all kinds of tech gadgets.

My talk will focus on Virtual Reality. I will discuss the current offerings of VR, what promise does the field hold, where does it fall short and, most importantly, how can UX methods and practices help unlock its full potential.
