The Tangent Gallery in Detroit this weekend is hosting the Marvelous Detroit Art Emporium for a multimedia music and art show Saturday August 17. Why promote this for a tech blog? Because BrandXR’s augmented reality murals are part of the show. Come check out the multimedia art recently featured on Cronicle created by Moody Mattan and friends. Summer is drawing to a close in a few weeks. Check this out for some end of summer festival fun.
Moody Mattan of Brand XR, an augmented and virtual reality company, says he got into the business side of tech by breaking into VC to help small groups generate billion-dollar outcomes. He’s from Michigan and went to Wayne State, but after graduating into a “terrible economy” in 2009, he moved overseas to work in logistics software in Malaysia and Jordan. He came back for an MBA and ended up in Silicon Valley in a firm working on augmented reality tech. He was interested in enterprise use for the technology, such as using augmented reality for virtual training or remote assistants.
