Palmer Luckey is the founder of Oculus, a virtual reality company, and is now pitching a whole new kind of tech to White House representatives.
His new idea revolves around border security and is extremely high tech and cost effective and could make POTUS Trump’s border wall more of a reality than any other potential contractor.

The system Luckey developed is able to identify differences between humans, coyotes, and drone activity, making it ridiculously more effective than the methods currently in place to detect border crossings.
Palmer Luckey is migrating from virtual realities to physical ones. His idea incorporates both LIDAR and Infrared sensors to watch the country’s borders. The tech could be mounted on poles along the perimeter, offering what he reportedly sees as a more cost-effective alternative to President Donald Trump’s promised wall.
“We need a new kind of defense company, one that will save taxpayer dollars while creating superior technology to keep our troops and citizens safer,” according to Luckey.

Luckey has been seeking funding for his plans from Trump campaign donor and transition team member Peter Thiel.”
