Josh #2- Episode 88 – Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality in Construction with Travis Voss from Mechanical Inc. I love it that a mechanical contractor hired someone like Travis. James and Travis geeked out on favorite programming language to kick off the interview – They are extremely progressive in leveraging AR and the HoloLens. Office Space reference and people skills. Travis has learned to love construction in a short time frame. Wants to get rid of tape measure. Not to mention the ConTechCrew was announced.
