Over Daan Groen
During my schooling as architect I was always looking for new ways to promote my design or ideas. Expressing yourself in the right way is very important if you want to create momentum for your ideas.
For that reason I started using 3D modeling software and photorealistic visualizations for my presentations. The next step was creating movies for my designs, but after that it stopped.
After graduating I came into contact with Igor Mayer who thought me new ways of using gaming for learning. Since learning is the same as giving information to an audience, it was clear to me that gaming was the next step in presenting concepts and ideas.
Therefore I co-founded InThere. A company which uses new gaming and social software to create interactive, digital visualizations.
Gaming is more than just fun, but even fun has it's purposes.
