About Blackeye VR

Blackeye is a cross reality (XR) experience studio and consultancy providing large scale, complex immersive virtual and mixed reality experiences. We operate in two countries: from Auckland in New Zealand, and from Kaohsiung in Taiwan.

Our largest current project is in the field of location-based VR entertainment for an Asian theme park, project size circa USD$500k.

Our consulting experience is extensive, given the short history of this latest chapter in the mass adoption of virtual reality. We have produced complex VR and 360 video experiences for commercial clients and advised many others on local suppliers.

We have published two books, Virtual Gets Real (released September 2017), and Going Next Level (due for release very soon!). Both 120 page volumes are in conjunction with the New Zealand VR/AR Association and authored by Michael Gregg, Managing Director/CEO of Blackeye VR.

We have assisted in the establishment of corporate convertible note debt/equity funding for selected New Zealand XR startups and assisted to establish a boutique venture investment fund, XR1.

Blackeye established the first PROJECTR® XR center in 2016, after the initial concept was conceived by our Managing Director, Michael Gregg, based on his earlier work with MediaLab (2001-2006).

Blackeye VR is now active in Taiwan, assisting startups from New Zealand and other English-speaking countries to establish disruptive technology subsidiaries into North Asia.

We are involved in establishing the local PROJECTR Taipei XR Center, as well as developing our own intellectual property in virtual reality, and continuing to take consulting and complex VR production assignments.
