Innovator of the Month: StrikerVR
StrikerVR, Inc. produces innovative haptic technology for the B2B electronics market. Their team designs and engineers cutting-edge peripherals for virtual reality gaming that allow users to experience a unique immersive experience with haptic feedback, modular programs, and positional tracking. StrikerVR has their sights set to launch a consumer product in 2023 – keep up-to-date with their launch.
Being a member of the Scale community has opened doors to the world of rapid prototyping for StrikerVR Inc. Their engineering team is able to work directly with our in-house Innovations team to 3D print, test, and iterate prototypes to produce user-end quality parts for their products.
Scale members receive a discount on printed parts and waived rush fees, saving StrikerVR in time and expenses. Where other retailers take at least 2 days to turn around iterations and charge shipping and rush fees, StrikerVR can get their iterations from the Innovations team in 24 hours for a fraction of retailer cost. This has reduced the need for outsourcing work away from the New Orleans ecosystem and gets their product into consumers’ hands faster.
StrikerVR’s unique positioning has allowed them to grow their business, hiring 26 new employees in the last year. The flexibility of the workspace has given them the opportunity to grow into larger office space as their team needs shift.
“Scale Workplace has been a great partner to StrikerVR, Inc. Their innovative space allows our team to iterate and create prototypes in-house, providing flexibility and shortened time-to-market. Scale’s team has helped us by offering an additional perspective and sounding board on engineering decisions. They also regularly schedule extracurricular activities at the workspace, fostering a healthy work environment and culture as we grow.” – Martin Holly, VP at StrikerVR
