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.

Info on the new product design course mentioned in the interview here.

The event Rob is speaking at is "Extreme Environments: From the Antarctic to Space" on Thursday 24th May.

Thanks to Helen Shorthouse and the entire team organising Techweek '18 this year for the chance to highlight some tech stories.  Techweek '18 runs nationally from Saturday 19th May - Sunday 27th May 2018.
