Founded in 2000
Partnered with Quanta Computer (going to produce the optics engine),
Flex (OEM using Lumus reference), and Deepoptics (vergence accommodation)
They have debuted their new prototype at CES––looks like Dragon Ball equipment.
Will be able to deploy Vuforia applications or demos using other AR libraries via this.
High Fidelity – Philip Rosedale
- Probably gonna need
- IP rights
- Payment system
Transaction expenses are high (syncing, VR transactions need to happen quickly,
must pay gas)
Federated Consensus – near-zero transaction fees, etc.
Bad Monetary Policy
- Bitcoin for being usable as a currency isn’t viable. Because Bitcoin is going up in
price so much and it’s fixed in circulation.
- Increase circulation as people join
- Second Life – made more money at roughly the same rate that people come online
- Use a smart contract to create an exchange rate scaling
High Fidelity Coin (HFC)
- Blockchain cryptocurrency
- Easy to use, initial grants for proof-of-identity, and multiple currency exchange
Philip waxing about tech, says something to the effect of “with any big shift in technology
what often comes as compelling is things that are currently done in the world i.e. payment”
Philip also mentioned via s-contracts allowing duels to occur for identity
Currently at 6D.AI
Came back from Japan
Saw so many vr experiences, met a ton of the community, discovered VTubing which
can also be found through IMVU, etc.
Learned a lot and PC VR isn’t a thing with Japan due to space and culture
PSVR location based VR situation
VR Zone Shinjuku-–world class location based experience. Tickets range from $10-15 per experience.
They take first-timers very seriously and interestingly take matters of safety really seriously.
Bruce really admired the standard of using motion platforms for everything, tie everything into an
IP, and did a great job of executing. Looks like he did a DBZ experience, and learned how to shoot a
Kamehamehameha. Mario Kart––on a motion platform, etc.
How long is the experience?
How much of what you saw in Japan will likely have an audience in EN?
How is FOVE doing?
VR experiences dealing with food?
