In today’s episode of Category Visionaries, we speak with Alon Grinshpoon, CEO of echo3D, about the virtual reality revolution, the almost unlimited potential of fully immersive technology, and why a supporting infrastructure is so important to make it happen. echo3D have positioned themselves as a 3D-native technology cloud solution for technology companies to develop VR applications at scale, retaining flexibility and function without getting left behind in a fast-moving marketplace.

From curing cybersickness to fixing rendering quality for 3D video experiences, solutions to the VR problems of tomorrow are a rapidly emerging industry at the very cutting edge of our digital future, whatever tools might end up emerging as the face of all this new technology, and echo3D’s integrated cloud platform might just be the glue which holds it all together behind the scenes.

Topics Discussed:

  • Being a self-declared ‘certified nerd,’ and a true believer in the potential of cloud technology and VR
  • How the metaverse spread across the world, and why it’s emerging between big tech and the youth technology market
  • Why VR is the next technology you don’t realize you need, and how websites, social media and smartphone applications prove the model
  • How a stint supporting VR surgery led Alon to rethink flexibility in 3D infrastructures
  • Why echo3D targets the technology developers who can build out applications at scale, and need the cloud support to realize that vision
  • Cyber sickness, rendering issues, and why the VR revolution offers a whole range of business opportunities
  • Why oversaturated buzzwords are still a boon for people really pushing the industry forward
