I created this site because I have an enduring passion for virtual reality, along with the many digital technologies that are related to it. I’m a sci-fi geek who lusted after the holodeck in Star Trek and ate up any movies or books that dealt with VR in any way. Cyberpunk was a major inspiration too when I was growing up.
Today I’m a big-time gamer and love spending time in virtual worlds both for fun and socialization. My day job involves working with all sorts of cutting-edge consumer technology, which includes research into how it affects us. Virtual and augmented reality as a whole interests me intensely and I think it’s going to affect almost every aspect of daily life at some point in the future.
The reason I decided to create this site is to get other people as excited as I am. I don’t want people in the technological mainstream to think of VR and AR as just another fad, which is why I concentrate both on basic education in VR/AR as well as more futuristic explorations of these technologies.
My hope is that those of you who find and enjoy this site will help keep the fire alive after the hype and faddish attention dies down again. VR still has a long way to go before it reaches its full potential. I’d hate to see the progress we’ve made in the last few years slow down to a trickle again.
Thanks for supporting my website and thanks for supporting VR and AR!
