I — Hologram.cool ?

Do you remember ? A few months ago – at the beginning of August 2017 — I was launching Hologram.cool — a tool to help web creators get into webVR and prototype for this new medium. A few weeks later I would put the project on hold to focus on native VR. Here is the brief story of what happened.

II — Native VR

Two weeks after launch, I would release version “2.0”, an improved version with a bunch a new features. The turning point occurred when I went to New York to met with Jason Toff — product manager at Google VR — this meeting radically shifted my vision towards virtual reality.

Conclusion

This has been a wild ride since August, I have been learning a lot and unfortunately not sharing enough — I was in what I call “Monk mode” or observing consciously and learning silently.

Thanks for reading ! 😘
