spark VR's origin

Spark Virtual Reality (VR) is the creation of Matthew McGivern and Joseph Eilert. Matt and Joe lived across the hall from each other freshman year at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Matt is a graduate of Rensselaer's business school while Joe studied engineering, but we are both passionate about creating a perfect customer experience. The idea for Spark VR was born in the Spring of 2016 and has been evolving ever since.

We hope that our varied expertise and points of view are apparent from the moment that you step into Spark VR. Spark represents the crossroads of cutting edge technology and user-focused design. Both of us are excited to keep improving the Spark VR experience, so if you see anything that can be improved or just want to say hello, please come up to us in store or send us an email at
