Every new medium brings with it a whole new universe to be explored for creative minds and content creators. While the human physiology stays the same, their media literacy develops with every generation of new media. Understanding the cognitve psychology of virtual reality helps to create experiences custom made for this new frontier of entertainment. While most developers are always drawing from what came before, the key to making a truly unique experience is embracing its limitations and possibilites rather than just reproducing the old content with an added dimension of fidelity. While cognitive psychology is a wide field this talk will focus specifically on aspects directly helpful for the current state of VR technology.
