Ronald Bittner is the Principal & Creator of Gemini Games LLC. Gemini is a start up game company which developed the new 3D structure building game called NuBrix. It is patent pending. This game is a high touch technology directed toward organic intervention for multiple venues. During development of the game it became evident that the concept captured both cognitive and motor skills and was inherent to therapy. It addresses three basic concepts for the brain to identify - shapes, color and numbers. Successful activity in the local VA spinal injury ward, brain injury rehab units and mentally challenged homes is the basis for our company motto - a focused connectivity experience. As a young man Ron lost a younger brother to a Traumatic brain injury. After years of his brother being shuttled from facility to facility. His family soon found interaction was limited with their stricken brother. This was a huge impetus to Ron's creation of NuBrix, found at nubrixgames.com
