Co-Founder Humense and AR/VR Innovator/Pioneer
Scott O’Brien is the co-founder of a world leading Virtual (VR), Mixed (MR) and Augmented Reality (AR) company, Humense. Humense based in Sydney, provides the world with immensely human experiences via a platform and toolset that facilitates and simulates human performance, communication in a range of realities and environments.
Since 2009 Scott has led the world in AR and VR commercialization efforts, working on multi-million dollar entertainment and industrial projects with various global leading brands and producers. Completing the conception and delivery of over 100 AR and VR apps and dozens of significant world firsts, Scott is now focused on human to human communication as a breakthrough to mainstream for various “reality” mediums.
Beyond text, image and video, comes volumetric videos where you can either walk around inside the video scene via VR, or invite a true to form, 3D volume or holographic video of a person/object into your personal space and time delivered in augmented or mixed reality (eyewear or mobile).
Due to the pursuit of the above, Scott is regularly sought as a speaker across a range of industries and education institutions. Most notably he was chosen to speak alongside Peter Costello at the annual Australian Superannuation industry event in 2014 discussing the future of holographic telepresence, workplace collaboration and training.
Scott and his colleagues at Humense help communicate how volumetric video and holographic telepresence will affect major infrastructure investments, environment and society in the billions of dollars and billions of people over the coming few years from today.
