NRC’s web designer, George Probst, was asked early this year to test out a new underwater camera rig that films 360° footage. George took the Kolor Abyss 360 on his recent great white shark diving trip to Isla de Guadalupe, and was able to capture some close-up footage of great white sharks. As far as we know, this is the first published video footage of great white sharks using this technology. This new technology allows for the video to be viewed from any angle and will create an immersive experience when viewed with a head-mounted display (such as the Oculus Rift).

Many of you know George Probst as NRC’s graphic designer and web developer, but there’s more than marketing in his tool belt. When he’s not working, George has some interesting hobbies: running, Metallica concerts, and…shark diving. At least once a year, he ventures to Guadalupe, Mexico to swim with great white sharks.
Not only does George swim with them, but he has also developed a keen eye for their best poses through underwater photography, which was recently recognized by Yahoo’s Flickr.
“When they come by and look you in the eye, there’s this connection. You get this completely different understanding. There’s a level of respect and awe for this huge animal,” George told the folks at Flickr. “People say, ‘I cant believe you did that. You’re crazy!’ And I tell them, if you were in the water, you wouldn’t think that way.”
George has been diving and photographing sharks in the wild since 2006. Besides sharing photography on Flickr, George also runs TheDorsalFin.com, a website that provides current shark-related news and promotes responsible shark conservation.

What a difference a weekend can make! Over the weekend, New River Computing moved from our Hubbard Street location to the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center to help alleviate some welcomed growing pains. On Friday evening, despite hours of work setting things up, our new offices looked as if Godzilla had wreaked havoc in our workspace. However, thanks to the tireless (okay, we actually were REALLY tired when all was said and done) efforts by the NRC staff, we’re proud to start showing off our new primary work area.
This is how our work room looked on Monday after a weekend of setup and cleanup.
And this is what the main work room looked like on Friday evening (you don’t even want to see what it looked like Friday morning).
We’re not the only ones who are happy with our new office. We also had some visitors come by on Monday to admire the new workspace from the outside windows!
