Of course those of us not at the workshop or aware of the plans that may be being made at the V & A ("V&A has been collecting digital design and is now working towards an exhibition on videogames curated by Louise Shannon and Alex Wiltshire, opening in July 2017") won't have a clue what Chris may refer to, but I was wondering what exactly can be meant by

>>>> My concerns about the current plans for the exhibition are that it doesn't seem to know who its audience is, and that it seems somewhat negative in its approach. Is this really an exhibition for 'gamers'? The term 'gamer' seems increasing irrelevant – and indeed a subcultural ghetto – in a world where games are now mainstream>>

>> -  here I read about the journalist's "Selbstversuch" with DevelopmentKit2 of Oculus Rift  (alpha and beta stages developed by Palmer Luckey, then bought out by Facebook), and this "test writer"

Am United States Army Research Laboratory forschen daran auch Ingenieure des Militärs und zunehmend Mediziner> 
>> -  trans. : "In the three-dimensional world of illusion, not only do crazy programmers play around, but also respected scientists, primarily computer scientists, together with physicists, engineers, biologists and psychologists. At the United States Army Research Laboratory,  the military engineers do research with it, and increasingly medical professionals....."
