He was born in a slum a couple hours from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

His idea is that taking big risks doesn't necessarily mean exposing oneself to danger. His talk makes comparison between business and personal risks.

Johannes Güntner

Since the release of the “Oculus Rift” (2013), so for about 5 years I’m highly amazed by the development and possibilities of Virtual Reality. Therefore I bought the developer version of the Oculus Rift and engaged into developing a variety of projects. Fortunately I was able to meet a variety of people in Tokyo, which also spend a lot of time developing and thinking about the possibilities of virtual and augmented reality.
Through those conversations a lot of great ideas for this technology regarding education triggered my inspiration I now want to share with other people.
In my near future I want to contribute to projects related to Virtual and Augmented Reality, and think about creating an organization or company which will create products and software for Virtual or Augmented Reality.
