THE DRAGON FEDERATION

Long ago, when the dragons were hunted near to extinction, the ancient Federation of Dragons sent them to their own world, the Dragon Realm, where they would be safe from the people who threatened them

.

We are Dragon Federation, a modern iteration of the Federation of Dragons. While our primary objective is still to protect the dragons, we are also developing the means to reunite them with humans as companions. We’re creating methods to interact with these beautiful creatures using both AR and VR technology, and our dream is to see you raise your own dragon.

THE EXPEDITION TEAM

MIKE MADSEN

Michael is a storyteller and adventurer with an appetite for knowledge. While his time creating software spans nearly a decade, with over four years specifically working with AR and VR, he constantly seeks to discover more about himself, the people around him, the world we all share... and even worlds beyond our own. He has an insatiable curiosity, and loves the thrill of learning, finding connections between seemingly unrelated things. He has a particularly deep passion for the mind, the way we think, and the why. He would like to think he is good at everything, but really, he just likes to think...
