Q&A Session with Bilawal Sidhu (VR Producer and Creative Technologist at Imaginfinity)by Bilawal Sidhu
Hey there! My name is Bilawal Sidhu and I'm a VR Producer and Creative Technologist at Imaginfinity. We specialize in producing VR and Mixed Media content. Beyond reaching a wide audience on Facebook and YouTube, our work has been featured by the likes of Autodesk, SamsungVR, Vrideo and VeeR.tv.
The CG bug bit me early. As a tween, it was making short films with a boat load of VFX. At USC, my passion for CG/VFX dovetailed into Human-Computer Interaction, coming full circle into enterprise AR and VR while working at Deloitte Digital post-graduation.
Beyond making sweet content, I am deeply passionate about democratizing VR content creation to attract new and diverse voices into the formative period of what is arguably the final creative medium. Whether you have questions about business model implications of spatial computing (VR/MR/AR), or the nitty gritty on how to actually make this stuff, I'm all ears.
Ask me anything!

Apple may already have 1000 engineers working on AR in Israel, claims UBS.by Anant Jain
A research report from UBS claims that Apple has as many as 1000 engineers working on its AR effort in Israel.
Apple has also made numerous AR-related acquisitions including PrimeSense and RealFace - both based in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Tim Cook has repeatedly been a clear advocate of AR over VR due to its potential of bringing people together:
I regard [augmented reality] as a big idea like the smartphone. The smartphone is for everyone, we don't have to think the iPhone is about a certain demographic, or country or vertical market: it’s for everyone. I think AR is that big, it’s huge. I get excited because of the things that could be done that could improve a lot of lives. - Tim Cook
