Enhance VR

We started back in 2015 after winning a hackathon with our first, two degree of freedom motion simulator. After getting some students in it we realized how much of a possibility we could really make simulators. From the start we always wanted to enhance virtual reality, hence the name. With some help from the entrepreneurship departments, we were able to build our second simulator and do successful tests at events and even a pilot test day at a local virtual reality arcade. We’ve been speakers at TEDx here in Binghamton talking about the future of VR. As of today we are officially a company and won the Binghamton Sharktank, winning $10,000. Our goals are to build our simulators, and lease them to businesses. We aim to continue building new versions of the simulator, as well as other prototypes to continue to enhance virtual reality.

Dimensional Energy

Dimensional Energy (DE) is working to deploy a technological solution that converts carbon dioxide and water to hydrocarbons via a process inspired by natural photosynthesis. The reaction takes place in simple, modular photo reactors powered by concentrated sunlight through our patented waveguide technology. Industries that emit a lot of CO2 are not only contributing to green house gas emissions, but are also throwing away a chemical that could be converted into more valuable products. For example, adopting Dimensional Energy’s HI-LIGHT reactors could give operators of a Syngas plant $360 Million in additional revenue, reduce CO2 emissions by 1M tons/year and pay back the investment in 5-7 years.

Binghamton University I-Corps Site:  National Science Foundation sites are awarded to research institutions who will nurture and support multiple, local teams to explore the possibility of transforming technology concepts for commercialization. The Binghamton site provides infrastructure, advice, resources, networking opportunities, training and modest funding to enable groups to transition their work into the marketplace or into becoming I-Corps National Team applicants. The goal of the site is to support innovation locally.

The Binghamton site runs an I-Corps Short Course several times a year. Participants in this free course will be exposed to the Business Model Canvas using a “flipped” classroom approach where most of the learning is acquired  “out of the building”  by talking to customers, partners, and industry experts. The course starts with two half days in-person, two weeks of online remote sessions, followed by an in-person half day session.

If you work with a team, the whole team can participate in the Short Course. Teams already working with industry mentors stand to maximize their experience in the Short Course, but a mentor is not required. Short Course participation is excellent preparation for those interested in the National I-Corps Program.

The Binghamton site and short course is coordinated by Tony Frontera-Entrepreneur in Residence and Professor of Entrepreneurship and Marketing at Binghamton University’s School of Management.
