The Brief (from Orange)

Practically anyone can now access VR environments using a standard smartphone and an affordable headset. Creating & sharing your own 360 degree environments is gaining popularity with a just a smartphone or a dedicated VR/360 camera. How will these environments alter our daily communications? How can we shape the scenes and settings to support those exchanges? And what practical applications can we imagine for everyday life?

These are some of the directions to explore in this Design Hackathon on Virtual Reality environments, allowing designers to craft these imagined scenes using some of the most cutting edge tools for VR design.
