Category Archives: Cool Companies

Hi, guys!

Those of you who know me also know I’m looking into future careers in the immersive technologies industry.  So far, I’ve been posting personal musings on academic institutions and other little VR-related goodies, and now I’m going to start a series called “Cool Companies.”  Basically, Cool Companies will consist of small blurbs and videos/images about immersive technologies-related companies that you guys should check out if you’re interested in finding a career in this field.

Starting off our first company in the series is…

Oblong

The era of one human, one mouse, one screen, one machine is giving way to what’s next: multiple participants, working in proximity and remotely, using a groundbreaking spatial interface to control applications and data spread across every display. This is what Oblong builds. It’s why we’re here.

That’s some pretty fancy jargon, but Oblong not only talks the talk, it also walks the walk with their g-speak spatial operating environment (SOE) platform:

Look like The Minority Report?  Well, it should since g-speak made its debut in this movie.  In addition to g-speak, Oblong has collaborative, shared environment technologies such as their digital whiteboard-like product Mezzanine.

Sound interesting?  Find out more at their company website.
