LAS VEGAS (July 15, 2021) – “I’m talking to you from my lab, so in the middle of this, I’m going to be inventing something.”
A completely credible statement from inventor and entrepreneur Nolan Bushnell opens his chat with GLI CEO James Maida in the latest episode of Gaming Laboratories International’s (GLI®) web series, Illuminating Conversations.
The episode premiered today and is available for streaming now exclusively at https://gaminglabs.com/
Bushnell's inventions read like a technology and pop culture encyclopedia: Atari, Chuck E. Cheese's Pizza Time Theater, in-car navigation systems, and dozens more. He has started more than 20 companies and been named one of "50 People Who Changed America" by Newsweek. In this conversation, he talks about three happy accidents that shaped his career, how he stumbled into the world of video games, the importance of execution, and he gives a preview of what he is working on now.
Specific to the gaming industry, Bushnell offers his insights and opinions about skill-based gaming, where esports are going, and provides guidance to CEOs on how to motivate their teams to innovate.
