MD096: A Very Plexing Situation for Makerspace Development


The hype surrounding Virtual Reality is dissipating.

In fact, the only recent ray of hope for VR has been the announcement that Plex now supports Gear VR.

Plex is a media serving application that allows consumers to create a fairly sophisticated entertainment experience at a minimum cost. And Gear VR is my personal platform of choice for developing augmented makerspace services.

Simply put, Plex could be the killer app that VR has been waiting for. Much like Solitaire was for Windows. Some would say that we as makerspace developers now have our chicken or Goose depending on your favorite egg metaphor.
