“Interactive, Immersive and Game Technologies for Wellbeing and Health”
Feb. 3 | 12:45 p.m. CET | Suite CC5.1 | Pedro Omedas
This session by Pedro Omedas is described as “An inside look at the technologies and principles used for the design of video games and extended reality applications and how they can be used to develop applications in the fields of health and well-being.”
In such a fast-paced world with so much to take in, it is nice to see developers learning how to include technology to help with people’s health and wellbeing. Not only does it benefit the developers, but consumers and end users can benefit not only from the product, but also in seeing technology developed with their mindfulness and health as a priority.
