---

1. Google Cardboard: "What is good enough?"

= authenticity and trust of experience
= immersion --> Consumption --> Audience --> Brand

2. Example: School kids - "field trips" - visiting the world via Google Cardboard (the ultimate field trip) / go to places we have never been before

3. Very real / as simple as a cardboard (1 million students worldwide) - tens of thousands of teachers. Integrating VR into the curriculum

4. Measuring Immersion -

The amount of feeling like you are "there" versus the amount of feeling like you are "here" ... measuring the sense of immersive experience

5. What does it take to make a great immersive VR Experiences?
a. 360-degree is super-important (context of looking around)
b. Stereo
c. Spatial Audio (50 percent of the experience gets 5 percent of the budget)

passion and energy of IVRPA Members.

===

I would love to give everyone a Jump camera.

Competition by the end of this week on github. Apply to have a Jump camera for a few weeks for Members of IVRPA. Wow!

For clarification, Google will loan a Jump Camera for a few weeks to IVRPA Members that have an idea / projects.
