An open discussion about the REVIVE hack and what the ramifications are for technology makers, content developers, and ultimately consumers.
A discussion of Google's new Daydream VR platform...put to music.
Interview with Jani Joki (Director of Engineering) and Ryan McCall (Director of Sales & Business Development) for Futuremark. They discuss their VR efforts, new mobile VR initiative, and their perspective on where the new generation of GPUs are headed. Very interesting!
Having loads of fun putting this series together. We've been working hard to keep it fresh and unique. Ping us if you have ideas and guests you'd like to see on the show.
MTBS would like to send out a big congratulations to GRUSH, a new company that is making motion tracked toothbrushes for kids. GRUSH won the grand one million dollar prize on the Intel-backed America's Greatest Makers reality show.
The idea behind GRUSH is that when combined with a smartphone app, kids (and their parents) will know how well their mouth is being brushed based on how and where they are brushing their teeth. What an amazing idea!
Why do we care so much about GRUSH? Aside from being an innovatively useful product, GRUSH was co-founded by Ethan Schur who also serves as Chief Marketing Officer and shareholder at ImmersiON-VRelia, an up and coming virtual reality technology maker, and we've know this persistent entrepreneur for nearly ten years. The team here was thrilled to see Ethan on CNN talking about his latest work - well deserved!
OK! You are probably wondering why we have a picture of a steam engine on the front page of MTBS. We have a very good excuse. In today's episode of Neil's Messy Basement, we talk about responsible virtual reality, and believe it or not, early locomotives turned out to be a really good (and hysterical) comparable to where the market is today. If you can get through the first ten minutes of ranting and raving, the pay-off is worth it.
