Virtual reality expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience and knowledge in virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, user interface design, computer graphics, software engineering, and/or immersive technology.

Virtual reality is an emerging technology that combines humans’ senses with a computer-generated environment, creating a virtual world. Virtual reality systems typically utilize virtual reality headsets to generate images and sounds that simulate a user’s presence in an alternate environment. Entertainment using virtual reality is very popular, including video games and 3D movies, sporting events, and music videos. In addition to entertainment, other virtual reality applications include: architecture, training, medicine, and the Arts. Virtual reality can also be used by law enforcement, such as for recreating a crime scene. Related to virtual reality technology are augmented reality technology and mixed reality (MR). Augmented reality is an experience where parts of a users’ real world environment are combined with digital content. Mixed reality combines augmented reality and virtual reality whereby digital content interacts with the users’ real world. An example of a mixed reality product is the Microsoft HoloLens smart glasses.

Virtual reality matters that require technical expertise typically involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement or trade secret misappropriation. Litigation support by a virtual reality expert witness could include a review of the technology, an expert report, expert opinion, and expert witness testimony at a trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a technical expert with prior expert witness experience. In addition, clients often seek a virtual reality industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work. While many experts have virtual reality expertise, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing expert testimony before the court in a manner whereby jurors can understand the technology and digital evidence.
