We were lucky to meet Steve Adler, the current Mayor of Austin at the party at Capital Factory last Friday. The party was to celebrate the grand opening of the new first floor at Capital Factory (They already had the 5th and 16th floor set aside for tech startups, but now have added an entire floor of offices, common areas, and VR labs.) We were showing off our multiplayer basketball experience that we created for the NBA when the Mayor asked if he could take a turn. We set him up with the HTC VIVE, showed him how it worked and he was off to the races. After a few bricks and airballs, the mayor got a feel for it, and was hitting buckets like a champ. Look out Lebron!
