Life is exciting sometimes: opportunities suddenly appear: opportunities that can vanish unless we act decisively.
Yesterday, Viki Yuan from Kandao sent me an email outlining the great features on the Obsidian 360 camera, "a beast of quality and speed".
A few months ago, on Facebook, I e-met Laura Lieu from Kandou.
The following is from an an email I sent to Laura a few hours ago. It is Friday night. One week from now, everything must be secured for a successful VR workshop. I hope this great opportunity does not become lost.
Following are excerpts from my email to Laura:
This email is about our small world and a huge opportunity for Kandao.
Next weekend is the Maker Faire at HK PolyU.
With Dr. Ludovic Krundel and his team of students, we are doing a two day AR/VR event.
This would be an excellent showcase for the Obsidian. The number of people who can be reached via the internet could be 100,000.
Maker Faire predicts 40,000 attendees over the two days.
Of course, we are documenting everything: live broadcasts, social media posts and making documentation for reference and promotion purposes.
Kandao would be promoted at a top university, at an international event, with a huge reach. At no cost.
Plus, for several months, Dr. Krundel has been communicating with Jack Tan about using KanDao products at PolyU.
Showcasing the Obsidian next week will be a great opportunity.
It would be great to have KanDao on board for this dynamic and popular event. Again, no charges... just bring your camera(s)!
Thank you VRy much for your help in trying to make this happen!
PS I am now contacting media of all kinds. Additionally, I have been in communication with the Hong Kong Virtual Reality Network, who have been interested and supportive.
PSS FWIW, Beach Road, my 360 VR video has been featured at festivals in Las Vegas, Singapore and Brisbane.
