Wearable Technology sensing combined with Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) advances will not only form how we will consume media in the future, but also how we create it. Facebook took a step towards validating the future of VR/AR media display with the highly publicized purchase of Oculus Rift. How might wearable technology aid in creation? Can choreographers and musicians can use this technology in performance and in composing new works? Let’s look at advancements in gaming to what the future might hold. Can we become part of the story?
