Rob Ruffler (@RobRuffler), Sr. Director of Virtual Reality at Viacom NEXT (@ViacomNEXT), stops by to chat about music, art, and making the content of the future. Born out of Viacom's R&D Lab, Viacom NEXT is the media conglomerate's emerging technology-focused arm. We chat about how they're conceptualizing interactivity, user interfaces, and the future of entertainment in the context of their critically-acclaimed roster of content like Smash Party (a collaboration with animation powerhouse Titmouse), Chocolate (from the genius mind of Tyler Hurd, creator of Butts and Old Friend), and the upcoming Melody of Dust (which features music, innovative live action capture techniques and will premiere at SXSW).
