In this episode we interview Amir Bozorgzadeh, founder of Virtuleap, whose mission is to enhance cognitive performance.
Here are a few of the key points we discuss …
- Amir’s roots and what led him to the world of virtual reality.
- How Virtualeap works to classify and enhance your cognitive skills.
- The dangers and ethical battles that VR presents.
And much more.
Here’s one great quote from this episode:
“[VR] is like a blue ocean.” – Amir Bozorgzadeh
The world of Virtual Reality is like a big, blue ocean. It’s uncharted, beautiful, and scary.
VR has practically infinite applications, from memory loss to athletic performance, and much more.
Amir puts this vast ocean of possibility into perspective for us, and shares some of the specific ways and sectors that Virtuleap is working in.
This interview opened up so many questions that we’ll have to have Amir back in the future to ask some of those, and see what else Virtuleap has developed.
For today, sit back, strap on your 6DOF headset, and enjoy.
(Just kidding – no VR equipment is required!)
