Its been a couple of weeks since we released our last podcast, and we want to thank all of our fans for being patient as we work out some bugs in our system. Last week, we sat down with the Founder and CEO of Sixense Entertainment, Amir Rubin, who talked about everything virtual reality. Rubin showed off his company's new STEM technology, which is designed to work hand-in-hand with both Steam and the Oculus VR to bring gaming to the next level.
Sixense had 10 days left in their Kickstarter campaign for the STEM controller, and had already managed to raise almost $550,000, which more than doubles their original funding goal of $250,000. Ruben even shows us some never before seen features of the STEM controller and clues us in on how their company is designing the system to be both maker and 3D printing friendly. Of course, this is big news for someone like me who is an avid 3D printing guru and promoter of the maker movement. We would like to thank Amir Rubin for joining us and letting us geek out with him for half an hour.
I would like to apologize for the poor quality of the video. We are working out some issues with our recording methods, and it appears that I have a bad audio cable that I did not know about until after the show was recorded. We are working on ironing out all of these issues and over the next few weeks, you should see our quality steadily improve. If you have any suggestions, comments, or critiques, please leave us a comment or email Anthony Garreffa or myself and we will take them into consideration. Once again, thanks for watching, and we hope you enjoy.
