    How Massive Can You Make Virtual Reality, literally?


    Ever since the Oculus Rift hit Kickstarter several years ago, VR enthusiasts have been on the edge of their seats waiting for the brave new world powered by virtual reality… which to date has been slow to come at best and a dud at worst. Oculus got swallowed up by Facebook and has been sitting in a pile of hopeful applications yet to come ever since. Samsung’s Gear VR is being practically given away on street corners in an attempt to gain users. Everybody else in the game is experiencing similar results. That might be because as cool as it is to sit in one place and be able [...] Read More

    Doob 3D Could Replace the Photo Industry with Real-Life Sculptures


    For centuries, people commissioned painters to create portraits of them or their families to hang on the walls (if they could afford to do so). The invention of photography brought this luxury of self-admiration to the masses.  As cameras became commonplace everyone began snapping photos at weddings, holidays, and other important events. Then came the digital age, the camera phone, and finally the smartphone, and suddenly there were billions of pictures and videos being taken and posted online daily. And as we all know, a huge chunk of these were – or rather are, since we’re [...] Read More

What is the Most Expensive One Minute Video Ever Made?

Grovo Makes the Most Expensive One Minute Video Ever Made

What do Victor Hugo and Jeff Fernandez of Grovo have in common?  They both are related to the quote “nothing is more powerful as an idea whose time has come” Jeff has raised a total of $65 million dollars for his start up Grovo to fund the newest big underserved market of corporate employee training with his idea of “microlearning”. In the last year Grovo has doubled their head count to 200 employees and with the recent $40 million dollars in new capital investment most likely the headcount will be growing. But what is Microlearning? According to the Grovo website: “It’s the process of learning complex skills in short, focused segments. After years of testing, we’ve found that 60-second videos, strategically organized into focused learning tracks, deliver the best results in the least amount of time.

Formation 8 is now moving faster than a speeding bullet, Hyperloop FAST!

Formation 8 is now moving faster than a speeding bullet, Hyperloop FAST!

If you have been following any major trends you’ll know that Elon Musk is in route to rule the world. Well, that may be an exaggeration, perhaps at least Mars, but on a Earth like note, last year he proposed an idea of a transportation method so futuristic that only someone crazy or super motivated would contemplate it. It turns out someone may be both and that organization goes by the name Formation 8.   So what is this futuristic idea and who is Formation 8? Read on! Formation 8 is an investment firm founded by Joe Lonsdale, Brian Koo and Jim Kim, back in 2011. So far they’ve done a superior job of picking some major money generating enterprises with its first fund. They just so happen to include RelateIQ, which Salesforce bought for $390 million, and Oculus, which Facebook bought for $2 billion last year. When they started they had eight employees at launch, and now close to 30 people wander about the office give or take. Let’s not forget the investments made in companies Wish, Radius, LearnSprout, Leeo, and Yello Mobile. Formation 8 is looking for “industry-transforming companies” no matter what their situation is. So in order to…

Why should you work at Skillshare?

Why should you work at Skillshare?

The concept is to give people a real-world education online and offline. You can find them thinking big and working hard out of their Soho, Manhattan headquarters. Their small team has bold vision and a laser-like focus. They have already grown to over 100K in paid enrollments in over 500 classes, even the teachers can make quite a bit of money themselves depending on popularity. The company has seen a recent injection of funds bringing Skillshare’s total capital to $10 million. Skillshare would like to hyper-expand in 2014 by going mobile and adding more courses (particularly in business, design and tech). Current openings at Skillshare. So what makes skillshare different from video-based education platforms like Lynda.com, CreativeLive, Khan Academy and Curious, is lessons that are both live and interactive, as well as courses that are project-based and allow students to learn at their own pace.

The Biggest Name in the Media Industry is the Last Name You’d Expect

They’re one of Apple’s primary partners, appearing at keynotes for new Apple product launches. They are slated to engage in 400,000 hours of streaming live video in 2014, and revenues for the year are estimated at $800 million. By 2016, their revenue projections will hit $1 billion. They’re among the most popular choices for content infrastructure, and one of the biggest media companies in the country. This company isn’t known as a media giant; they’re far more recognizable in other circles, though.   One of the biggest media companies in the industry right now is actually MLB Advanced Media, the tech company of Major League Baseball. How Major League Baseball Became a Media Industry Giant With their innovative approach to media, MLB’s tech division is now considered more of a media company than a baseball organization. MLB Advanced Media began with MLB.com, and was funded through an agreement with the thirty baseball clubs which comprised of $1 million each year over a four-year span. The estimated cost was $120 million, but MLB Advanced Media began turning a profit three years later. After investing less than $75 million, investors started to see ROI, and now those thirty owners are earning annual…
