By Doede Holtkamp on October 20, 2017

Oliver leads on innovative and technical solutions allowing REWIND to deliver ground-breaking and challenging productions.

1. What are the most inspiring aspects of your work in XR?
For the first time, we can truly take control of all of your senses, allowing you to suspend your disbelief and fully imerse yourself in an world of someone elses creation.

2. What is the most promising, exciting development now happening?
The emerging technologies in the Mixed Realities space that allow the digital world to bleed into the real will change how we percieve and interact with the real world.

3. What is the blind spot in XR, something that people seem to overlook?
Experiences are often created with only the technology and USP in mind, often leaving the traditional facets of presentation and performance.

4. What areas in XR have the biggest growth potential and why?
Business uses will be what drives end-user adoption. As with most technology, it’s the “boring” things that you use daily that will inspire creative uses of those technologies.

5. Where will XR be in five to ten years from now?

6. Anything else you would like to share with us?

Oliver Kibblewhite’s presentation at VR Days Europe
Context is King — The context in which an experience is shown or demonstrated will frame how the user percieves the experience and what they will take away from it.

Excerpt presentation
Without context we are blind. Our experience of the world is entirely based on change, we as humans can only detect changes in light, changes air pressure as sound, differences in temperature.
