Kent Bye (Voices of VR) on the Ultimate Potential of VR (Part 2)

The Guest

Kent Bye is the creator and host of the Voices of VR podcast. He’s recorded more than a thousand interviews featuring the pioneering artists, storytellers, and technologists driving the resurgence of virtual & augmented reality.

Kent is a philosopher, oral historian, and experiential journalist helping to define the patterns of immersive storytelling, experiential design, and the ultimate potential of XR.

He’s speaking about the ethical & moral dilemmas of mixed reality at the 2019 AWE conference happening later this month, and he was a co-organizer of the VR Privacy Summit at Stanford University in 2018.

The Conversation

In this, the second part of my conversation with Kent, we get into Kent’s perspective on a question he asks all of his guests: What is the ultimate potential of VR?

In achieving that potential, Kent talks about the importance of creating a model of the human experience. And he describes how VR & AR can enable something that is more important than having access to money and resources.

Kent makes a ton of references, and I tried to capture them all below.
