I started how to create VR dot com about two years ago after I first put on the Oculus rift. It blew my mind and my brain started going into overdrive thinking about how creators key use V. R. And A R. To create awesome user experiences. That moment was when I decided to create a meet up in a podcast around VR focusing on creators and I wanted to call it how to create VR, I launched the site, how to create VR dot com to promote that podcast and meet up after that, I decided that I wanted creators to find out more about the various technologies and tools available to them to create VR and they are beyond unity and unreal. That's when I started creating tutorials on these various tools and came up with the tagline, discover, learn create, I wanted creators to discover all these great tools, learn how to use them and then go create VR experiences. Finally, at the end of 2018, I decided to move the meet up from a physical place to virtual reality in all space VR So that's where we are today selling my baby was not an easy decision to make as I care a lot about it.
The VR creators have visited daily in its growth. However, back in november 2018, my wife became sick and was in and out of hospitals in april of this year, we were told she had cancer, luckily they caught the council on time and with the chemo treatment she's going through, we are hoping that everything will turn out fine. However, because of this, my focus and energies are completely on taking care of her, my kids and working in my full time job also because of this situation and the fact that I didn't want how to create VR dot com to suffer from my lack of focus on it, I started looking for a great partner that could take care of my baby. This is where Jim Malcolm, the chief marketing officer at Humanized Technologies, came in. Jim and I have known each other for a while now. He's a genuinely nice guy that really cares about VR the industry and VR creators as much as I do. We started talking about the synergies between Humanized Technologies and how to create VR dot com earlier this year. And well, as they say, the rest is history. I know that Jim along with his team at Humanized Technologies will not only take care of how to create VR dot com as much as I did, but their vast resources will be able to take it to the next level.
I'm currently involved in helping them through this transition, but as of october 14 2019, I will no longer be involved in the site. However, I'm happy to announce that I will be their first guest on the next episode of the how to create VR dot com podcast with their new host, Jim Malcolm also, I am not giving up on VR as I own an Oculus quest and play it almost daily. I'm also a big pusher of er, in the enterprise and I'm still involved in the creation of VR experiences in my current job. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank each and every one of you for sticking with me all this time throughout the past two years, signing up to my site, watching all the content and for believing in VR and its power as much as I do.

I still feel like that today and can't wait to see how V R and A R evolves. If you want to stay in touch with me, please feel free to email me at marcelo at red pill blue pill studios dot com.
