During the first segment of our 88 minute show, Blaze introduced us to the SpaceVR company, their 2D technology, their goals including wanting people to become astronauts, plus STEM outreach and education. Blaze spent a good part of the first segment talking about their technology, why they use 2D instead of 3D, the side effects which suggest more usage of 2D, the viewing headsets they work with plus their subscription fee and costs. He also talked about their recent successful Kickstarter venture and mentioned that several of their perks were still available and will be for a few more weeks. If you are interested go to their Kickstarter site, www.kickstarter.com/projects/1035872323/spacevr-step-into-space?ref=proj.... Another topic that we discussed was the use of audio on their VR films plus some of the details about their special camera they have made to do the filming. In the second segment, we talked about SpaceVR stem outreach. We talked about their visits to high school students, the student interest in the space virtual reality imaging and in space as well. Later, I asked Blaze questions about black and white VR imaging, then as a result of several listener questions, Blaze said they were considering licensing their products for video games, movies, and other uses by other companies. Near the end of the program, I asked Blaze if he had always been interested in space. He told us about his early grade school interest in wanting to be an astronaut so he has been a space cadet all his life. In fact, he would consider doing a one way Mars trip to live on Mars at some point in the future. Other topics came up as the program was ending including geographic regions for their imaging, menu choices, age levels suitable for VR and more.
