I spoke to Puya Abolfathi, CEO of a VR/AR startup, speaker and technology communicator passionate about human-machine interfaces including exoskeleton and immersive mediums like VR and AR.
Puya worked all over the globe on the world’s only flying eye hospital, designing research tools for investigating how human reflexes work, and creating a wearable exoskeleton for the function and rehabilitation of paralyzed and damaged hands.
He won the Australian Eureka Prize for Inspiring Science in 2004 and the National Disability Award for Excellence in Technology from the Prime Minister of Australia in 2016.
Today, Puya and his team at Visospace have developed a VR locomotion companion to experience full smooth omnidirectional locomotion in virtual reality on your own hoverboard!
We talked about the future of virtual reality and how we will interface with this new digitized upcoming mixed reality world. 🎧 Listen or watch the full podcast in the link in my bio.
