#Mira’s #Prism headset is a lot like #Google Cardboard but for augmented reality, and investors at Greylock Partners think that’s a cool enough idea they led a $1 million funding round in the startup.
The amount brings the total funding raised by #Mira to $2.5 million.
The startup also started shipping developer kits for its $100 #Prism headset to the first set of people who pre-ordered it.
With the release yesterday of iOS 11 and its #ARKit, the headset may allow industrious developers to explore more immersive ideas with #ARKit.
#Prism is compatible with iPhone 6, 6S, 7, and 8 “with support for additional iPhone models and manufacturers coming soon.”You can preorder #Prism on the company’s website.
