Jorge R. López Benito

Hi there! My name is Jorge and I'm a tech entrepreneur passionate about "Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality"

I’ve founded 3 startups, I’m co-author of 3 books, 1 patent and more than 30 publications on technological innovation on Interactive Technologies with +10 years researching and building Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) products.

I love researching new ways to provide innovative solutions applied to industry, education and eHealth through exponential technologies. I've wide experience in consultancy and project management, including FP7 & H2020, and I'm specialized in managing multiple and large projects with several teams, focused on delivering results.

I'm involved in cool projects such as: "AugmentedHospital! HoloDeck4D", a 4D Holographic Desk (patent) with a 3D software viewer for Oncological Diagnosis in PET/TC Nuclear Medicine; "AugmentedClass!" a revolutionary educational environment in Augmented and Virtual Reality technologies for educational contents; or "Stories of Tomorrow! Students Visions on the Future of Space Exploration", a R&D project funded by the European Commission, involving 15 partners from 10 countries, where the concept of storytelling is used as a catalyst for the effective interaction between Art and STEM disciplines (STEAM) through Augmented and Virtual reality technologies.

My personal project is: "STEAM Foundation". Do you wanna help me?
