This fall has been a very busy time for us at VR Motion Corp. We completed a successful second demo with the US Air Force at F.E. Warren AFB in Cheyenne WY with our channel partner, Skid Car System Inc.
We leased a small space in Prospect Silicon Valley in San Jose, CA for our VR demo’s and also to be close to General Motors as part of the sponsored track at 500 Startups in Mountain View, CA. General Motors’ R&D division joined Silicon Valley venture funds
We are continuing to build our team and delighted to have secured a part-time contract position with Barry Zundel. Barry is an experienced developer with startup experience and senior positions at Disney and Pixar.
September was again a very busy month as we did multiple VC demos at our new Demo Center in Silicon Valley, along with a Chevy Bolt EV demo which led to an inquiry from a major OEM for a POC to create a VR driving experience for one of their newest luxury vehicles. We also met the team of a well-connected marketing agency based in Bellevue, WA and discussed several ways that we can partner with them. We also re-engaged with our contact at the Portland International Auto Show about additional VR Test Drives on the 2018 Auto Show circuit.
We completed a lengthy interview and video with AutoWerkz, to be released on their website AutoWerkz.tv. We have secured marketing materials at SEMA and CES thanks to two great articles in www.autonewsonline.com and were a featured in a number of write-ups online.

Demonstrations have been completed in Silicon Valley with large county school bus driver training team, one of the largest fleet of interstate transportations companies, and one of the world’s largest food delivery companies to cap it all off! Collectively, these companies employ nearly 20,000 professional drivers and hire hundreds of drivers that need training every week. We completed Intel-sponsored Focus Groups on Teen Driving at our HQ in Hillsboro where we got significant group feedback from the CMD parent/teen focus group. We were validated in the areas we feel are the strengths of our product. Finally, we have completed two simulator supplier hardware audits, we are very happy to create long-term partnerships with two hardware vendors.
We were invited to attended the 2017 Regional First Responders Symposium at the Center for Emergency Solutions at Concordia University and had over 25 great demo’s to a wide variety of first responders. Great TV coverage was provided by KATU News .
