Episode 12: The next big disruptor
NextVR’s Brad Allen talks about how virtual reality is about to change everything
Only a handful of people have ever had the opportunity sit courtside at an NBA game. But thanks to NextVR, all of that is about to change.
NextVR – the leader in live-action virtual reality broadcast technology – has developed a way to deliver live and on-demand virtual reality experiences to anyone with a smartphone and a VR device, allowing a massive amount of consumers to immerse themselves into environments that they would otherwise never dream of experiencing in reality. An NFL game from the 50-yard line. The PGA Masters up close and personal. The heavy-weight boxing match from ring-side. The World Series from behind home plate. Virtual reality is poised to disrupt the entire athletics and entertainment industry as we know it.
In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, you will hear from Chairman of NextVR, Brad Allen, about how NextVR anticipated this enormous opportunity in the marketplace and strategically innovated to meet consumers’ needs in a way that no one else ever has.
