PORTFOLIO: Seminal Virtual Reality (VR) Developments By Scott
Our team is known as “The Father’s of VR”. They built, and received U.S. Government patent awards on, the first immersive VR and augmented digital reality systems.
Some of those systems were very expensive, as high as $2.5M at the time. Now available in retail stores for under $600.
The First Virtual Reality Systems from the 1970’s to today. Designed, built, patented and sold by Scott and his Team.

Scott gave away Super super-low cost VR googles:
If you can use tape, scissors, glue and pliers, you can most likely build some of these systems yourself.
You already have the main part of the electronics by using your phone, tablet, computer or gamebox. You don’t even have to tear any electronics apart. You can make this dual purpose.
As shown in this image, and in the time-stamps on our patent filings and issuance’s, we developed one of the first, if not the first, uses of a smartphone as the head-mounted display and position-sensor unit:
Get a new back mount or get new lenses and swap them out when you need to. It is designed for hot swap lenses. Ideal lenses are the stacked Fresnel flat stamp 70-120 degree or the Erfle 65 degree lens, or the Plano Convex 92/95 degree lens. These lenses, or lens sets, can be purchased from various suppliers online for less than $30.00. They are not as nice as LEEP lenses but will do in a pinch.
You can hot dip the whole mount in truck bed coating or black electrical tape-it for various amounts of blackout/immersion of the unit. (A famous game company spent millions on legal research to determine that due to past litigation from users of other gaming VR headsets from other companies, not ours, one cannot legally sell you a fully blacked-out headset mount.) You choose your safest blackout/immersion level based on your use and safety parameters.
Past VR Work & Products Include:
The U.S. Government, after extensive investigation, awarded us multiple seminal patents as sole inventor of immersive virtual reality chambers, now known as “The Cave” or “The Holodeck”. This technology is used in the highest end tactical mission simulators and defense training systems:

We has consulted on Virtual Reality, Networked Simulation and wearable visualization technologies for a number of government and corporate clients. Here is an E! Entertainment Network segment about Scott’s work with the Production of Oliver Stone’s“Wild Palms”:

In 1985 Dr. Michael McGreevy and Scott Fisher and their associates at NASA Ames Research Center began using the LEEP very wide angle optics in spy satellite analysis views that provided 3D still images of bomb targets for drones and Defense Department projects.
From 1990 to today, The United States Government has awarded Scott ongoing patents and federal credentials which stated that, after extensive federal confirmation research had confirmed and validated that Scott had invented, designed and built the first 1.) integrated VR Goggle Entertainment System, 2.) VR Glasses, 3.) Holodeck, CAVE VR, 4.) Tactile extrusion VR shape shifting wall, 5.) Cyber Chair 6.) Fresnel VR Glasses lens system and other Virtual Reality, Flight Simulator and Tactile mission simulator technology devices.
Scott was a technology consultant for Oliver Stone’s Film: WILD PALMS (production 1990-1993, Released 1993), which was, in part, based on Scott’s technology consulting and a storyline by Bruce Wagner. Here is a special segment E! Entertainment Network did on Scott’s technology as it appeared in WILD PALM’s:
In 1997 Scott won best Producer/Director in a national contest for the first entirely PC-Produced virtual reality theme park ride-film:
Media documentation proves that Scott was first on the 7 claimed virtual reality technologies, and that competitor hype (ie: Palmer Luckey/Facebook) over-shadowed the factual milestones that proved that Scott was actually first on those 7 technology developments:
Scott Douglas Redmond: Inventor of Modern VR Technologies
Why would anybody even bother arguing about who did what first in some obscure technology issue?
BECAUSE IT IS WORTH OVER TWO BILLION DOLLARS IN THE END!
Scott had the first known, filed, U.S. Patent on the use of a smartphone as an HMD display and position sensor per U.S. Patent filings and America Invents contracts:
2016 : The U.S. Patent Office issues determination that Scott beat Mark Zuckerberg on first social media and VR deployments. Facebook staff again suggest that Zuckerberg hire Scott to save collapsing Oculus initiative but professional jealously prevents Zuck from agreeing.
In 2017, a company named ZENIMAX sued FACEBOOK- OCULUS in a two billion dollar lawsuit over who had invented VR Goggles. FACEBOOK stated that a guy named Palmer Luckey had invented VR Goggles “in his garage” 20 years after Scott had been awarded patents on the Goggles. The case became a ground-breaking epic in Silicon Valley history. The case demonstrated that Palmer Luckey had not even been born ( Palmer was born in 1992) when Scott had already designed, patented, built, sold and demonstrated Scott’s VR Goggles, glasses and Holodeck rooms per U.S. Government records. Oculus staff have now been arrested for underage sex schemes, and the 2017 CES Oculus showings garnered some of the worst technology reviews-per-investment dollar of almost any new technology product. Scott has decades of time-stamped communications with both parties in the Z vs. F action.
