Portland Trail Blazers Point Guard and NBA Superstar Damian

July 15, 2020 Portland, Oregon - As an avid gamer and champion for education, Damian Lillard is taking an equity position in Portland-based VIZN Gaming. VIZN Gaming’s first-in-industry UltraVR™ technology plug-&-play converts the last 30 years of video games into full 360 3D Virtual Reality (VR). Instead of playing a video game on a monitor, this effectively puts gamers inside their favorite video games such as NBA2K, Fortnite, Overwatch, Call of Duty, Valorant, Halo, PUBg, and iracing games. It’s a whole new approach to creating a VR experience with eight times more image resolution than today’s best VR technology..

In addition, VIZN Gaming’s upcoming product the UltraVR Cube is creating education excitement as the next-generation learning experience in virtual reality classrooms. Once wearing the UltraVR headset, a student sees avatars of their teacher and classmates in a virtual classroom complete with walls, posters, and a whiteboard like a real classroom. This technology will work with current curriculum made in a game engine allowing existing content to instantly convert into 360 3D VR making it possible for students to create content.

“The gaming aspect of the UltraVR goggles is incredible. You literally can be inside the game and see your entire surroundings. As for the education potential for the Cube, imagine teaching students about a coral reef and being able to actually take them underwater to the Great Barrier Reef. In our new world of virtual classrooms, this technology will be an amazing tool,” said Damian Lillard.

“We are excited to have Damian as part of the team, he brings huge value with his gaming expertise, and education focus with his RESPECT program,” said Craig Peterson, CEO & Founder of VIZN Gaming. "He will help create great visibility of this new trendsetting technology as we drive it into the market.”

Craig Peterson is a 29-year Intel Corporation veteran where he invented things that are in virtually every piece of electronics in the world today. Craig has disruptively changed the direction of whole industries three times in his career including changing the direction of the entire supercomputer industry in the mid-90s where his second DARPA-funded startup established the technology that was the initial core of Intel’s Enterprise business.
