Ahah! We forgot to mention something very important! The Wizdish kickstarter has begun! With a modest goal of 50,000 pounds, Wizdish is the latest effort to get that VR treadmill on your livingroom floor. Not quite a treadmill, mind you - but another method of translating your foot movements into fun video game action.
One thing that really caught our eye was how portable this unit is, and current product reviews remain positive. In the actual Kickstarter video, Julian is on a Wizdish on a house roof...don't try this at home, kids!
We know the Wizdish team has been working very hard on this exciting venture for some time. Similar to other innovations contributing to a positive gaming experience, please help make their Kickstarter a success!
This year's keynote presenter was Rejean Bourgault, Vice President of Avaya. Rejean is a futurist who professionally speaks around the world about things to come. Among the countless topics featured, he also touches on video games and...hinting on a follow-up presentation that we will share later...game immersion.
This presentation comes highly recommended, and we think it's an excellent conversation piece.
The word has been circulating the web that Oculus VR has successfully raised $16 million dollars in venture capital funding from Spark Capital and Matrix Partners. To celebrate this...windfall...we have been putting together an interview with our filthy rich friend Palmer Luckey. We take that back! He's not really filthy.
While we are waiting, MTBS thought it fitting to share some popular Monty Burns moments from The Simpsons! Money fight, anyone?
