Th3rdEyeXR was established by Th3rd Coast’s co-founders, Joseph Van Harken and Jeff Joanisse, when they noticed a gap in enterprise news coverage for the field of extended reality (XR) – the catchall industry term encompassing virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR). While many news sites cover XR news, most are geared towards gaming, entertainment, or to the general consumer. Th3rdEyeXR, on the other hand, specifically targets the interests of an enterprise audience, providing insights on development, trends, and practical use cases to the world of business. Ultimately, Th3rdEyeXR strives to raise the professional community’s base-level understanding of XR, enabling them to harness and implement the power of this immersive, emerging technology to transform their business operations, improve their products, and create a better future for all.

Nervanix is an exciting company in the educational technology sector that applies groundbreaking advances in the field of neuroscience to improve attention and focus in order to optimize learner engagement and achievement. The technology is used to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of instructional learning models by applying the concept of Attention Adaptivity™. Using state-of-the-art EEG technology, Nervanix measures attention levels of learners, both in real time as well as longitudinally, and uses that information to enable learners to self-identify areas of inattention and help them train their attentional skills, empower instructional designers with new data to help them optimize content for learner engagement, and inform instructors/managers on attentional levels of their learners/employees, providing them a unique, new perspective around training and performance, and allowing them to adapt their instructional approach to make learning more efficient and effective.

As a partnership between Th3rd Coast and Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (KCAD of FSU), the Th3rd Coast KCAD of FSU Emerging Tech Innovation Lab provides students with a creative, low-stress, intellectually-stimulating environment to explore and design VR, AR, and MR experiences. The combination of these fields is known as extended reality (XR). Students will have one-on-one time with professionals, building both a portfolio and network to pursue employment after graduation. Several Michigan-based Fortune 500 companies and global software leaders have already expressed interest in supporting the Th3rd Coast KCAD of FSU Emerging Tech Innovation Lab. This intersection of academia and enterprise will further propel Grand Rapids as a marker leader for the emerging creative economy.
