    Ep. 17 - Jack Maddalena | What Needs To Happen For VR & AR To Go Mainstream

    Jack Maddalena is the co-founder of VRCraftworks.

    Founders of VRCraftworks, Peter and Jack were experimenting with immersive technology for years before it became a talking point in mainstream media. Their interest began when they became a part of a small online community with the likes of "parmtech" (Palmer Luckey - Founder of Oculus) and other leading figures in the field. The online community along with Peter and Jack initially wanted to buy the first VR headset from "parmtech" until a kickstarter created Oculus, now one of the top selling providers of VR headsets. From the developments in hardware Peter and Jack decided to dive in, creating VRCraftworks and haven't looked back since.

    The first application the father and son duo created, Orbulus, became a hit. Orbulus was published as one of the 'Top Ten' VR apps to download. With this interest grew, with the likes of Google wanting to include our app in the launch of the Google Cardboard headset. Since then VRCraftworks has grown and so have the projects. With Peter's skills in running businesses and Jack's marketing and sales, plus the passion of immersive technology, the company blossomed.

    Ep. 14 - Maarten Tobias | Simulated Reality - 3D VR without the Virtual Reality Headset

    Ep. 14 - Maarten Tobias | Simulated Reality - 3D VR without the Virtual Reality Headset

    Since its founding in 2010 in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, Dimenco has become the leading technology company in the world that brings excitement and reality to your home in 3D. Dimenco is recognized as a world market leader in 3D with high-quality award-winning products.

    Dimenco is moving towards Simulated Reality. Simulated Reality vision creates a new way to experience the world. To bring people together, enhance communication and redefine what’s possible...

    Depth perception is created by bonding a specially developed lenticular overlay to an LCD screen, in such a way that projected light is transmitted in different directions. Introducing interference into what each eye perceives results in the perception of depth on a flat surface. The observer’s left and right eye see different images on the display, which the brain fuses into single image, without requiring cumbersome, inconvenient 3D glasses. Dimenco’s 3D technology allows viewers to sit anywhere in a room and see a customizable 3D image. This is easy on the eyes and can be watched from different angles.

    In addition to the design of the lenticular overlay and optical bonding to an LCD, the technology developed by Dimenco also encompasses 3D image processing. Dimenco also offers vast experience in industrial 3D display and component manufacturing.
