We're just weeks away from XRDC in San Francisco, and organizers want to make sure that as you're finalizing your plans you don't overlook a promising data-driven talk about the contemporary VR market.
Specifically, the XRDC Games & Entertainment track talk on "Top 5 Things VR Developers Need to Know Based on Data" from Observer Analytics cofounder and chief Lucas Toohey.
If you love actionable data you want to see this talk, as Toohey plans to discuss key insights that have emerged from Observer Analytics' aggregate data which highlight best practices and design decisions directly affecting playability and retention.
By examining user behavior in a variety of application types, Toohey's team have identified problem areas when designing VR experiences, including designing for physical movement, user onboarding strategies, how first-time users react, and more.
Toohey aims to share useful takeaways in these areas, as well as a smorgasbord of overall VR usage statistics!
