The demo was set up a few floors below where the pitches were happening. Each company had a space to demo their virtual reality product. Everyone was relieved to be done with the pitch and move on to the fun part of demoing their product. We had rumii up and running and the HTC Vives ready to teleport people into their virtual office. We had a blast showing VCs and the other teams the power of rumii. Everyone we spoke to was excited about the possibilities and asked when we could implement a full version for them. More importantly we enjoyed the comradery of showing the power of this technology with the other companies. It was great to see the different applications of VR and to see the VCs' excitement in investing in it.
When all the pitches and demos were complete we all walked to a restaurant called Kro's Nest. The waitress served us beer and giant sliced pizza was laid out on trays. The waiters continued to bring out food. First french fries, which we thought was a bit strange, then BBQ chicken wings, and lastly onion rings! One of the Canadian teams was so happy to eat this North American food since they were in the middle of a four month stay in China. After we were done eating, but not done drinking, Michael had us go around the room introducing people who weren't on our teams. If you didn't know who they were you had to sing or dance. We saw Gangnam Style, heard Happy Birthday in Chinese, and Elbert blurted out the Backstreet Boys. The final challenge of the night was that one person from each team was to go take five separate selfies with Chinese folks on the street. We selected Chance since he was the tallest. We watched from the restaurant window as our team members ran around taking selfies with innocent Chinese citizens trying to make their way down the sidewalk. It was a great way to end this first chapter of our fundraising adventure.
