Reading in VR

I plan to port Author to XR when Apple release their ‘Reality’ headset. As such, and as part of experimenting for the third edition of The Future of Text, I have been experimenting with text in VR.

I built a basic test room with a desk at the same height as my physical desk where I have been experimenting with different layouts of The Future of Text for VR. An introduction/overview is in this video, based on a presentation to the Future Text Lab on the 17th of October 2022.

This in the end persuaded me to start working with a larger physical display, while I wait for the XR environment to become fully useable (reliable and high resolution). I have written to Apple expressing what I think needs to be done for us developers.

This work was done as part of the Lab, so it is hosted on the Future Text Lab Website:
