Based in Silicon Valley, Ben has held editorial positions across several technology publications for eight years. He founded Road to VR in 2011 to explore the immense possibilities of virtual reality, augmented reality, and human-computer interaction. Having seen the individual pieces but never the entire puzzle, he set out to map VR’s current state-of-the-art and to understand how far it is from a perfect simulation of reality (a la Matrix). Beginning with tracking the consumer VR space nearly a year before the Oculus Rift Kickstarter, Ben has spent the last several years actively documenting and promoting the industry as it experiences an explosive resurgence.
