Oh hello there. Thank you for stopping by the Look On Media blog. Allow me to introduce myself and explain a little bit about what we're doing.
I'm Jon and along with my absurdly talented colleague Brian, we are the founders of Look On Media. Our goal is super simple - we want to make amazing and memorable experiences in virtual reality that teach people things. What things you ask? Anything!
Learning has gotten a lot more engaging since computers hit the scene, but even then it's been attenuated through the frame of a screen, which can be, oh how do we put it, boring. That's why things like science centers and museums are really cool when done properly - because it creates an experience that you participate in both physically and mentally. It's an event, and events are memorable and impacting. Now imagine if that museum morphed into a space ship and flung you across the galaxy while Patric Stuart personally narrated your fan fiction... - ok, I'm getting ahead of myself, but this is the crux of Look On Media - to create a powerful event out of every experience, and with VR that experience is only limited by our imaginations.
It's a really exciting time to be working with VR technology, and Brian and I couldn't be happier doing it. Everything we get a chance to work on and everyone we talk to ends up spawning another hundred ideas, which is going to make for some really fun and interesting projects that will ultimately engage audiences in all new ways. That's pretty cool.
If your head is already spinning with ideas, don't be shy! We'd love to hear them and if nothing else just pontificate about how awesome all this is. Get in touch via this site, our email, twitter, smoke signals, anything because we are all about it.
Until next time...
