Rob is a Professor and Research Leader at the HIT Lab NZ (Human Interface Technologies) at Canterbury University.  This interview is released in the lead up to Techweek '18 as we highlight stories from the tech sector.  In this interview we talk about Rob's background and how he started researching virtual reality in the 1990s, the origins and key points in the history of virtual reality, how you have to start with the human problem faced before getting carried away with technology and what the future holds for augmented reality.
