“We are getting interest that I don’t think we would have gotten without COVID,” McBride said.
One of the company’s biggest projects last year was building a VR African safari for the North Carolina Zoo.
McBride said the zoo renewed the project for this year, but when COVID-19 hit it was put on hold. The same thing happened with a project for another large corporation.
John McBride, who owns Looking Glass XR with his business partner Sunny Lindenthal, said two projects won’t happen this year because of the virus but other projects have taken their place.
