Today’s episode is with the “grandfather of virtual reality”. That’s right. Tom Furness was one of the early pioneers of the technology that we now refer to as “virtual reality”.
To be honest, I know nothing about virtual reality so I was a bit nervous with this interview. But as you’ll hear, speaking with Tom is like speaking to an old friend.
He takes us through his journey of playing with rocket fuel as a kid, to helping start companies that are now traded publicly, and to mentoring countless students in the process.
Tom is a legend in his own right, but you would never know it just talking to him. He’s a humble man with a big heart and clearly is leaving behind both a virtual and a very real legacy.
