If you want to hear an incredible story of a young iphone app developer and entrepreneur I recommend you watch this inspiring video of Allen Wong from Regoapps story of success. He spoke at Harvard and then at Valencia here in Orlando, Florida. He created a Police scanner and many other cool apps.
The past couple days have been very informative at the OrlandoIX conference here in Orlando, Florida. The conference brings together game developers, graphics artists, 3D artists, programmers, and many other digital developers together. There are many helpful sessions for learning and discussing the industry. The conference was extremely helpful to me as I’ve been dabbling in learning 3D and animation. There were lots of developers creating games for the new virtual reality gear like Oculus, and HTC Vive. The coolest presentation and talk was from The Void and how they developed virtual reality experiences that are deployed outside of the home. They created the tech and the experience looks really amazing. The feedback k from people who have tried the experience in New York absolutely love it. I’m really looking forward to following the progress on this company.
While attending the OrlandoIX conference I decided to walk over to the AIMEXPO to check out some motorcycles.
This here is the new 2017 GSX-R1000R limited edition sport bike. This bike has been labelled as the “The King of Sportbikes” and boy it is a sexy machine! This is basically a track race bike tuned for the street, and your either a speed enthusiast, racer, or just plain nuts to want this rocket bike. It features a new aluminum frame, and engine has a unique variable valve timing system connected via Ride-By-Wire throttle for a huge power band delivery. I’ve always been a fan of F1, MotoGP, and speed.
However as much as I admire these bikes, I’m quite happy on my Trek road bike, because this thing is pure freaking danger. Maybe one day, for now I’ll be an admirer. The pricing has not been announced yet. You can gather all the details online here.
