I didn’t get to try the technology, but I was sold on the vision. Still, I had a lingering question:
Me: Why is the company named “AxonVR”?
Interviewer: ‘Axon’ is a part of a nerve. It’s like the connector that enables us to feel sensations. So AxonVR is the connector that makes you feel virtual reality.
Me: That’s great! … But what if people stop calling it virtual reality?
Interviewer: …It’s been called VR since the ‘90s.
Me: And couldn’t this technology have applications beyond VR?
Interviewer (growing frustrated): Let’s move on.
