Hacking XR – Future applications: full body senses & haptics

The Hacking XR Speaker Series is offered in Spring 2019, in conjunction with the MIT class Hacking XR: VR and Immersive Media Production (CMS.339/839), and the MIT Open Documentary Lab.

How do we extend other human senses? This year has been a game changer in appearance and resurgence of haptic devices, and exploration of new senses in immersive experience. How do we bring touch, heat, cold to VR?

Andrew Mitrak is the Director of Marketing at HaptX, the startup bringing touch to virtual reality. Prior to HaptX, Andrew produced marketing videos for companies including Microsoft, Hasbro, and AT&T. One of his VR pieces with HaptX debuted at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Andrew earned his Master’s in Communication from the University of Washington in Seattle.
