How do you stimulate a user’s physical presence in a virtual environment? Augmented and Virtual Reality Design (VR Design) is the practice of harnessing computer technology along with virtual reality headsets and tools to craft a virtual  environment built from images and sounds. This is an emerging domain with a wide range of applications and vast potential for impact. Academy Xi’s immersive one-day bootcamp in AR/VR Design is the best place to start for anyone seeking AR/VR experience.


Over this accelerated day, we’ve condensed key learning outcomes and take an intensive dive into the fundamentals of AR/VR. Our experienced instructors will help you understand the history and use of AR/VR, what it can do, the commercial application, and the new limits for creativity and technology. Our courses are hands-on and high-energy with engaging and immersive challenges, equipment demonstrations and user experience best practice.


We start off with an intro into AR/VR, free play on the machines so you can see the technology available, and identify differences between the AR/VR offerings. You’ll gain knowledge about the applications and real-world industry examples of VR in action, looking at case studies and the tools and techniques used to create virtual worlds.
