Recently the Lucid VR team, founded by Class of 2014 M.Eng. alum Han Jin, raised $2.1 million in seed funding and have partnered with Wistron Corporation, a top five global ODM, to help bring LucidCam to mass production.
The pocket-sized LucidCam captures 3D VR video, pretty much as your eyes see the world. The company hopes to make its mark as virtual reality becomes a $30 billion industry by 2020. This new camera will compete with the high-end Facebook Surround 360 camera announced yesterday at Facebook’s F8 conference.
We’re so thrilled to witness Han’s LucidCam taking off and revolutionizing the world of virtual reality. If you want to follow the Lucid VR team’s progress, you can subscribe to their newsletter on their official website!
