Tommy and Jim Meet
Following an MSU Today article on Tommy's presentation about VR accessibility, Jim Curran reached out to Tommy about a project to recreate the Detroit Tigers Stadium in VR. This would become the first project for, and inception of, Great Lakes Reality Labs.Read the Article
Our First Office
After working out of borrowed spaces, we finally acquired our own office at the East Lansing Technological Innovation Center.
Already Time to Move
Grown to a team of six, a 10ft by 20ft space no longer cut it for VR development. Luckily, we were able find an new home close to the Michigan State Capitol in an old warehouse that used to belong to the United States Department of Defense used to build wings for Boeing B-52's. So much history!
With several projects under our belt, we decided that the best method to get these training modules to students and teachers is to organize them into a single, accessible library. In collaboration with the Michigan Association of Intermediate School Administrators (MAISA), this decision became the start of the Virtual Reality Learning Initiative (VIRLI).Visit VIRLI
Office Numero Tres
Old warehouse quaintness unfortunately still comes with warehouse issues. To comfortably accommodate our team of ten, it was time to move once again. Our latest home is at The Hive by Lansing Housing.
