It was August 26th, 2015 at a VR film festival in Seattle, WA. I figured, “Why not. I bet the audio is bad and I can make contacts”. Mind blown! I saw great potential in what VR could be and how I could contribute in the audio sense. The bigger picture was an epiphany from discovering a technology that would allow me to do with sound what I had always conceived but could never do.
Fast forward to current time and the day I get my first VR goggles. While I would want the Vive, the Gear VR is way more affordable if you have a Samsung phone. I didn’t have the phone, but you don’t have to use it as a phone to enjoy VR. So I bought a used S6 on eBay and waited for delivery.
