Helps us see our IPCs
Omer is a unity developer and is the lead on the IPC Viewer project. All the screen shots you see here where IPCs are standing on QR codes is a result of Omer's handy work. As a graduate of the Academy of Art in San Francisco, Omer was one of Ed Annunziata's favorite students so he hired him as soon as he graduated.
