Neuromancers win VR Brain Jam

By | Food for thought, In The News, On location

We somehow ended up as part of a VR super team that included Moshe Ben-Zacharia, Jonathan Oglevie, Rachél Bazelais, Scott Tongue, and neuroscientist Wick Perry for the 2017 Games for Change “VR Brain Jam”. As the creator of the impressive “Body VR”, Mo quickly emerged as the tech lead for the team. After a weekend of brain chemistry crash courses, too much Mexican food and candy, and lots of new friendships, the “Neuromancers” were chosen by their piers and the judges as the winners of the competition.
