Applying Multimedia skills to AR/VR

Ryan McCloskey is a Junior Software Developer working in the AR/VR thematic area within the MEPS group at TSSG. Ryan is currently working in front-end design and development and brings a variety of skills to the AR/VR area in both design and development aspects.

Creating intuitive and easy-to-use experiences is a crucial element of AR and VR content creation, with multimedia content being the gateway to the experience. The normalisation of AR/VR brings new challenges, particularly in the area of interfaces. The fundamental principles of user interfaces persist for AR/VR, but the medium brings specific new challenges, with intuitive UI and 3D elements crucial to enhancing a user’s experience within an AR or VR environment, and Ryan’s 2D and 3D multimedia content creation skills will be a valuable asset in the AR/VR space.
