What’s in a name?
LINK VR Showcase is named for Edwin Link (1904-1981), a pioneer in many fields, including immersive technology for education. In 1929, he invented the Link Flight Trainer, a simulator that taught pilots to fly by instruments in a much safer way than the alternative. Link’s forward-thinking approach was rooted in a passion for the new industry of flight as much as in knowledge from the family pipe organ business. Link is our inaugural event’s spirit animal, reminding us to foster these creative connections.
