AR startup Mira is shipping out their dev kit on the heels of an additional round of funding. The team has already received funding from backers including Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, Will.i.am,and Sequoia Capital and now have raised an additional $1 million.
More affordable than the $3,000 HoloLens and the $949 Meta2 Mira uses an iPhone for the headset's brain, Mira apps run on an iPhone, and the iPhone screen is part of the display.
"Right now this is the only accessible hardware solution for AR," Mira CEO Ben Taft said.
"This is really a vehicle to deliver our software platform and the content we're cocreating," Mira COO Matt Stern said. "It's all about creating an accessible solution that people aren't scared of — not putting a big machine on their head that costs multiples of $1,000."
