AR/VR Consultant, Blogger
Antony “Skarredghost” Vitillo is an AR/VR consultant, startupper, blogger and community member.
In 2014, he tried an Oculus Rift DK2 and he immediately fell in love with virtual reality. In that moment, he decided that he wanted VR to be the purpose of his life.
That journey led him at first to start Immotionar, a startup that had the dream of revolutioning virtual reality by adding the full body avatar of the user in 2014; then, in 2016, to start his blog The Ghost Howls, to inform people about virtual reality; and in the end in 2017, after the end of his startup, to create a new agency to offer AR/VR consultancies called New Technology Walkers. There he continues innovating, and his recent mixed reality experiments with the Vive Focus, prove this.
Antony has spoken in various VR events, like the important Vive Immersive Conference in Shenzhen or the WTT in Turin. As a blogger, he has also taken part to other manifestations like the Gamescom in Cologne, the View Conference in Turin, or the Sandbox Immersive Festival in Qingdao. He has also contributed to the important book Convergence by Forbes’s journalist Charlie Fink.
He is considered as one of the top 50 worldwide VR influencers, and this lets him connect to important people in the XR ecosystem. In 2018, he has also been a Quora top writer.
Whatever he does, he works with passion and grit. Even if, as a popular meme says, most of the time, he has no idea what he is doing.
