I'd like to read some resources on VR. Interests include:

  • Major 'no-nos' for immersive experiences;
  • Design patterns for VR
  • Case studies of VR products
  • Hidden difficulties with the practicality of creating VR experiences (e.g. moving from 2D assets to 3D)
  • How to user test an immersive product
  • Usability heuristics for 3D
  • Relevant materials from 3D game design
  • Where to find academic research or university project writeups
  • Openly available VR products to use as benchmarks
  • 3D space design guidelines in general

VR is pretty cutting edge, so imagine most of the resources are quite piecemeal, or hidden behind paywalls. That's okay! I'm a patient reader. I'd just like to know if others have discovered anything interesting.

  • Here's one of the best collection of VR learning resources I stumbled across. uxofvr.com It has links to articles, videos, books and slides too. In particular, I would highly recommend watching Mike Alger's videos. Its concise, very insightful and has some of the best content for VR design. Hope it helps!

I've tried to make this list as non-platform-specific as possible. Keep in mind that any of these links may have a degree of bias towards certain VR headsets, 3D engines, or techniques.


Some thorough guidelines that I can think of right now are:

Other than that, there are lots of articles, videos, and other bite-sized resources online—a good repository of those is at uxofvr.com, as recommended by Utsav above.
