Understand the Industry - Globally & Locally

We're taking a look at the many dimensions of the virtual reality and augmented reality markets - globally and locally. We want to understand the unique assets we have among Rhode Island's practitioners, their goals and needs, and help them make valuable connections.

Position RIVR for Competitive Advantage

As we learn about Rhode Island's VR/AR resources, and the needs and interests of the market, our next step is to accelerate learning and connectedness to prepare RIVR for successful competition today and in the years to come. Our goal is for Rhode Island to be a material participant in an industry expected to be worth $180 billion annually within 10 years.

Make A Significant Economic Impact in Rhode Island

Since 2014 billions of dollars have been invested to fund research and development, new companies, and new kinds of communications productions. So far only a tiny fraction of that investment has come to Rhode Island. We're going to form a VR industry cluster, and ignite interest in RIVR constituents.

ReelTime is currently in talks with a major state of the art hotel and condominium project to incorporate virtual rooms as a major attraction for the development. "ReelTime VR a pioneer in the development of Virtual Reality programming and technologies is developing a Virtual Room for consumer and commercial use. The revolutionary rooms utilize 4K video walls, floor, and ceiling fueled with ReelTimes' patent pending technology that can create any environment desired."

"The Virtual Rooms can have the consumer sitting on a couch in a traditional living room with and desired décor one second, and then transport them instantly to a white sandy beach, high rise penthouse, or even orbiting the earth from a space station. Furthermore, the ReelTime Virtual Rooms (RVR) can be combined with other rooms to provide inhabitants of both rooms to perceive that they are in the same environment as if they were there together."
