TKC 453 Bufo Calvin in Virtual Reality

Creator of I Love My Kindle and The Measured Circle

Interview starts at 6:14 and ends at 43:10

“It would also be able to know what your preferences are–that’s one of the biggest things about what we’ll see eventually with Virtual Reality. So for myself as a vegetarian, I could walk down that virtual aisle and have things that were for vegetarians maybe have a green outline on them, so that I could tell what was what.”
