In this fourth episode of the bodymindself™ podcast psychologist and cognitive scientist John Francis Leader (JFL) meets game developer and virtual reality specialist Nikki Lannen to discuss what’s happening in gaming and the implications of virtual reality.

Nikki Lannen @nikkilannen is the founder and CEO of Warducks @War_Ducks warducks.com, a Dublin based Virtual Reality Studio, and the creators of Sneaky Bears. WarDucks’ mission is to build quality and fun games and experiences for Virtual Reality devices with a special goal of being the most people-centric game development studio in the world.

The bodymindself™ podcast, newly launched in 2017, is an ongoing series of conversations between JFL and others on the topics of applied psychology and cognitive science, experiential learning, perception, virtual and mixed reality, embodiment, mental processes and identification.

The aim of the series is to include the voices of people from very diverse backgrounds, ranging from academia to those working on the frontline in applied fields, with the hope of gaining an even greater systematic understanding of the topics being explored. All references and views expressed are those of the person who expressed them and not necessarily those of JFL.
