The Economic Resource Council’s Green Screen Institute plans to make Nevada County a virtual reality innovative technology hub, by seeking out and promoting virtual reality and augmented reality companies.
One of the ripe VR opportunities is the design of unique interfaces for virtual gaming systems. The current Make Newsletter has an interesting example in an article written by Jeremy Williams. Jeremy was an Editor at PC Gamer Magazine and Software Engineer for Qore on the PlayStation Network and dedicated VR Gamer. Jeremy writes:
I remember the 1950s playing the pinball machines in the Cobalt Rec Hall, until the government agents showed and close them down as illegal gambling machines. People would bet on who could get the highest score. One of those machines ended up in our garage, where I took it apart to see how it worked.
I am not a gamer, but I am very interested in VR and AR as economic disrupters and will continue to provide some of my thoughts in future Green Screen Reviews.
