That is because technology and the Internet have transformed the business landscape forever. The fast paced digital age has accelerated the need for companies to become agile."
With this said, Bushnell will be supporting his son Wyatt Bushnell, the founder and CTO of Californian-based company Virsix Inc, where he will be showcasing the Virtual Reality Cube, as well as Virtual Dodgeball.
