Heads up, VR devs: Virtual Reality Developers Conference organizers are hard at work lining up a fantastic array of VR/AR experts to speak at the big November show, including game researcher, designer and XEODesign founder Nicole Lazzaro.

In Lazarro's VRDC talk on "VR Usability in Wonderland," she plans to outline how VR game devs must releasrn how to do things like move a game's camera, design a player interface, and even play audio in order to effectively immerse players in a VR experience.

Based on two years of VR research on games such as Job Simulator, Defense Grid, EVE: Valkyrie, plus 25 years of game research and developing XEODesign's own VR game Follow the White Rabbit (pictured) Lazzaro will deliver a deep dive into player psychology, usability, and the neuropsychology of emotion.
