Virtual and Augmented reality are at once both sparkly brand new, and descendants of humanity's most ancient arts. Google's Chief Game Designer will bring some perspective to the origins of these technologies, why they matter to us in terms of evolution and storytelling, and give an overview of how Google is now supporting them with tech like Android N, Tango, Daydream, and Spotlight Stories.
