TV Futures : Virtually There...with Dr Nick Lodge

We can’t do it with a mobile phone or a tablet; we need a large screen or head-mounted display, we need 3D audio, we need body tracking and we may even need haptics and olfaction. The future lies in understanding how new technology can match and manipulate our senses to evoke yet more compelling feelings of 'being there'. And it is no small matter to produce entertaining content, to deliver it to viewers - and ensure it doesn't make them sick!
