(TechCrunch) SpaceVR’s vision is bringing people to space through the power of VR and robotics. CEO Ryan Holmes believes that a stereoscopic experience with immersive visuals and remote operators is the best way to get at the promise offered by space.
Holmes sees robotics as the easiest answer to the exploration of other planets. Robots are cheaper and easier to send to space than people by several orders of magnitude. And, if sensing technology improves in the decade til the company’s robots make it out to space, then it’s even easier to see the value. Holmes has a set a target of deploying 10 million robots by the end of the decade.
