About this project

I am trying to add a user interface in to our (my) creative toolbox. My HTC VIVE VR headset, my iPhone + apps and my Pilot Precise V7 black pen have been serving me well for a few years now, but have set me up to be a bit lonely.  I make films, theater and music everyday as best I can, and the carpal tunnel aching from my ergonomic mouse and the increasingly thicker glasses are bumming me out. I want to play more and fail better. When my head is in my screen, it can be informative but isolationist so I am trying to build a platform of hardware and software that can make everywhere I play/work&live more interactive/shared.

People are my drug.  I am so much happier when my head is up and my spine is straight and the air is clean and the water is pure and the people around me are creating as our best selves. Open to the energy and colors and sounds and smells around us.  Creating new art works in teams that support and see each other equitably and optimistically.  Thoughtfully, mindfully, excitedly and passionately working towards our common goal - whatever that may be.  Build a new restaurant, building, improv group or experience.  

But whatever genre of collaboration you are practicing, it shouldn't matter where you are.  I want to build a Harkness Room that enables my creative team to travel seamlessly from Virtual Reality through Augmented Reality and into Physical Reality without any loss.  Wanna try it with me?

Risks and challenges

I have spent the last 9 months addressing the question of Reality 2.0 and how we might get there together. This iRoom is a part of a larger creative venture that is very difficult for me to pare down, but the pitfalls, as with any of my ventures, are exhilarating. I suspect that there are dozens of reasonable outcomes i see, but it is the outcomes that I don't see yet that intrigue me. I don't know if Star Trekkie atomization is possible but I would like to try to feel like I can teleport into a meeting with my teammates, no matter where they are in the world and then jump into another CollabRative experience with a different team of friends without much effort or loss of communication.

    CUBE Project mentorship

    This is an exclusive offer, for a team of Creatives who may want some guidence through a specific project. As you write/create music, theater, film, blogs, dance, restaurants, magazines, interiors, exteriors, vlogs and theme parks you are bombarded with the nuance of creativity. I have a way of managing those kind of projects that combines tangible data from your team (such as heart rate and sobriety) with INtangile data and feeds back to the team measurable results. Our Mentors have deep experience with collaboration and will schedule up to 4 Skype sessions where we will give you this measurable, tangible & intangible data in ways related specifically to your project. I can't tell you exactly how we do it but using the latest in wearables, our app and bleeding-edge technology, your team will learn how to assess your project and repeat the good parts next time on your own; guaranteed.
