    InformationWeek IT Life Radio: Where Virtual Reality Falls Short

    in Technology

    Oculus Rift and other virtual reality helmets are seen by many as potential game changers in gaming, retail, entertainment and other industries. But VR has significant weaknesses. You're stuck inside the helmet. It locks your experience and makes it difficult to share with co-workers or friends.


    John Underkoffler thinks there is a better way. He's been called "the real-life Tony Stark." Underkoffler the computer scientist and award-winning user-interface designer behind the films "Minority Report" and "Iron Man," believes the future isn't locked in these headsets, it's in shareable experiences and workspaces. Collaboration is not about creating virtual walls, but working with one another on actual walls. People need space for their ideas to spread as they flow in real time. VR users need a whole new UI to really interact properly.


    We'll talk to Underkoffler about the future of collaboration and shared visuals in the workspace. We'll see what might be beyond virtual reality. 


    John Underkoffler is CEO of Oblong Industries, developer of the g-speak Spatial Operating Environment and the Mezzanine conferencing and collaboration system in use at firms from Boeing to Beats Music. Oblong's technological trajectories build on fifteen years of foundational work at the MIT Media Laboratory, where John was responsible for innovations in real-time computer graphics, large-scale visualization techniques, and the I/O Bulb and Luminous Room systems. He has been science advisor to films including Minority Report, The Hulk (A.Lee), Aeon Flux, Stranger Than Fiction, and Iron Man. John also serves as adjunct professor in the USC School of Cinematic Arts; on the boards of the 5D Conference, the University Art Museum board at CSULB, Sequoyah School, and the E14 Fund; and on MIT's Visiting Committee. He is the 2015 Cooper Hewitt National Design Award winner for Interaction Design.

    Omarian Atman - Spiritual Healing & Other Therapeutic Therapies

    in Nutrition

    Omarian Atman is the founder of Acu Light Wellness™, and primarily raised on both the East and West coasts of the US. With an early exposure to art, music and biology he began taking art courses while self-studying the works of Carl Sagan at age nine. Later honing his skills as a painter, graphic artist and web designer while learning the secrets of Color and Light Therapies from the historic teachings of the fathers and mothers of Light and health research. "Traditional work never appealed to me," He began selling bronze sculptures by world class artists online. While he made a good living, Atman felt something was missing in his life. Like his mother, he always had a desire and aptitude and a keen interest in the healing arts. Intuitively, art and health and the cosmos were fused in his mind and he began the exploration of light, particularly the theory of Color and Light Optics and its effects on health.


    Omarian Atman fashioned his career from skills derived from his highly talented and very diverse parents. His mother is a Medical Doctor educated at Harvard, and his father is an artist and a musician who attended the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, obtained a Master's Degree in Art, and performed as a musician on Broadway in the 1980's. Originally from Jamaica, they came to the U.S. without resources, seeking the "American dream" and found it through persistence, hard work and creative willpower.


    For over a decade Omarian has studied electromagnetic therapies and other health modalities including Medical Astrology and Telemetric Healing. His intention was to unlock the psychological, emotional and physical triggers in people's unconscious and conscious awareness that contributed to physical illnesses. Creating a disease free way of health while empowering people to understand that it all comes from within for the miracle of health to take place.
