Inside The Avatar’s Studio brings together innovative leaders from the virtual technology frontier to discuss perceptions, perspectives, and predictions of what ‘being virtual’ means in today’s society.
Host Kevin Feenan and guest Alice Krueger will discuss current issues and trends surrounding the implications virtual experiences have for people with disabilities and the affordances that virtual reality opens new opportunities to redefine the question: “What is normal, anyway?”
