Virtual Reality is a user centered medium like no other before. Understanding the psychology of the user is key to shaping experiences fit for the virtual world with its current technical limitations. The key elements that make VR stand out are presence, agency and its social possibilities. This talk gives inspiration to focus on those three pillars to create outstanding VR experiences. Examples highlight the importance of considering the psychological dimension when creating virtual worlds for the user to be in and interact with. This is a follow up on Thomas' GDC 2016 talk "Cognitive Psychology of Virtual Reality: Basics, Problems and Tips".
Attendees will get ideas for how to improve their VR productions by learning psychological aspects of virtual reality. Even with less of a psychological background the audience will understand the implications by the practical tipps and examples given.

Designers and Developers who want to get insights into the user experience, perception and psychology of VR as an inspiration to create better VR experiences.
