in the hands of developers, providing the community with countless new
opportunities for creating amazing experiences and generating revenue in
a new way.

“Our team is looking forward to being an active contributor and
collaborator within the VR community. We hope Modal VR will help expand
our understanding of what is possible and help push the industry forward
in different ways,” said Jason Crawford, inventor and founder of Modal
VR.

“Modal VR is helping enterprises solve problems and collaborate
differently,” said Nolan Bushnell, co-founder and chairman, Modal VR.
“Modal VR’s system and the software that runs on it makes it very
different than what’s already on the market today.”

“We have been working to bring ambitious mixed reality content to our
fans and Modal VR is well beyond the limitations we thought possible,”
said Shaun Novak, senior director of production at Machinima.“The
wireless portability, full-body tracking and massive play area really
allows for compelling experience in and out of the headset. Modal VR has
been a great partner in showing the fun of VR.”
