Humaneyes Technologies Acquires HowToCreateVR.com
It is with great pleasure for me to announce that HowToCreateVR.com has been acquired by Humaneyes Technologies Ltd., global provider of Virtual Reality cameras (VUZE) and accessories.
I started HowToCreateVR.com about 2 years ago with the goal of evangelizing VR and helping developers create awesome experiences through tutorials, podcast interviews, VR events, webinars and videos. As you all know, I’m a huge believer of VR and it’s future in both our personal and professional lives.
Selling “my baby” was not an easy decision to make as I care a lot about it, the VR creators that visit it daily and its growth. However, back in November of 2018 my wife became sick and was in and out of hospitals and in April of this year, we were told she had Cancer. Luckily, they caught it on time and with the chemo treatments she’s going through, we are hoping that everything will turn out fine. However, because of this, my focus and energies are completely on taking care of her, my kids and working in my full time job. Because of this and that fact that I didn’t want HowToCreateVR.com to suffer from my lack of focus on it, I started looking for a great partner that would take care of “my baby”.
This is where Jim Malcom, the Chief Marketing Officer at Humaneyes Technologies comes in. Jim and I have known each other for a long time and I know he’s a genuinely nice guy that really cares about VR, the industry and VR creators as much as I do. We started the conversations about this possible acquisition back in July and, well, as they say, the rest is history. I know that Jim, along with his team at Humaneyes Technologies will not only take care of HowToCreateVR.com as much as I did, but, with their vast resources, will be able to take it to the next level.
As of next week, I will no longer be involved in the site as I need to focus on my family and job. However, I will be the first guest on the next podcast episode of HowToCreateVR.com with Jim Malcolm! Also, I’m not giving up VR, as I own an Oculus Quest and play it almost daily!
It’s been a truly awesome ride, from just an idea of promoting VR and creating content around it to having Humaneyes Technologies acquire my site. I know that they will make a wonderful home for HowToCreateVR.com as they continue to nurture it and grow it.
I thank each and everyone of you for sticking with me throughout the past 2 years, signing up to my site, watching all the content and for believing in VR and its power as much as I do.
So until we meet again, Scotty, beam me up!
