#4: Virtual Reality with Chuck Olsen, CEO of Visual
“Go after that weird thing you want to do.” –Chuck Olsen
Chuck Olsen was one of the internet’s first video bloggers and today is the co-founder and CEO of the Minneapolis-based virtual reality company Visual.
Chuck is arguably the go-to person for all things virtual reality in the Twin Cities, and his company made headlines recently after releasing a 360-degree video app with music-streaming giant Rhapsody.
Chuck opens up about his passion for using virtual reality as an engine to promote social good and talks about a recent trip to China with a local non-profit.
He provides a clear and vivid glimpse into the future of how virtual reality will be integrated into our daily lives and explores several industries already utilizing the technology.
And he called me the Podmaster!
