“Virtual Reality Grandfather” - Dr. Thomas Furness

I was blown away when I first put my first set of virtual reality goggle set on years ago and saw my arms and legs of my “avatar”. How this technology was actually beginning in development in 1966 by Dr. Thomas Furness for the US Government and to what it has become, and the potential of a mass usage daily across the world is “out of this world”. I wanted to introduce you to another friend of mine and come along this learning ride with me about different things in industries through the podcast. This was one of the most fascinating interviews I’ve had to date that also affects us all. Eventually if not today!
