Students from RCAD Virtual Reality Development and Game art and Design majors share their industry collaborative journeys in projects such as “Glitch Out VR” and “Moffitt VR: A Treatment Simulation."

PRESENTATION: Glitch Out VR: The Making Of a Game
We will be discussing the development and preproduction process all the way to the polish state of our game. As well as guidelines for collaborating with other departments.

PRESENTATION: Moffitt VR: A Treatment Simulation
A collaboration between the Ringling College of Art and Design's VR Department and Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. RCAD Virtual Reality Development students worked in collaboration with Moffitt Cancer Center to create a VR training simulation to educate patients with pancreatic cancer on what radiation therapy is and to show them what it is like to receive treatment in an MRI Linac machine. Featured student team-members: Timber Robert, Quinn Kuslich, Joseph Jansse, Xavier Rodriguez, Ruoling Xu and Megan Dudley.
