    1. Interested in launching a similar experiment in your organization?

      The model really assumes a work environment where a whole team can be compelled to participate. Can you make this kind of culture change with a coalition of the willing? For the participants, is a cohort enough? Or does a partial attempt just reinforce the divisions between groups in the organization?

    1. Realism will increase (perhaps to hyperrealism) and our ability to perceive and interact with simulated objects and settings will be indistinguishable to our senses.

Transcending today’s drone piloting, remote surgery, etc., we will see through remote eyes and work through remote hands anywhere.

      On the increase of realism in the future

    1. Work-life balance However, I recently understood that while we were working on the game, I broke the one and only rule I set for the founders of the company: always family first.

The same probably applies to everyone in the team, since we shared love and passion for the franchise.

      "In order to balance I never left anything pending on my to-do-list for tomorrow. If I did, I worked on break shift from home post putting her off to sleep. This was possible because I could manage my office on laptop. To release the pressure points I tore papers, took cold water bath in the middle of the night, laid on the floor in child pose."
