In the comments they say unlike with castAR, this time Jeri will remain CEO, and looks like no investors who could interfere. I backed it.

Damn, 900k+
Not bad.

I like the idea. It's more like "augmented reality" than VR per se. Well, a mix of both. Neat. Pure VR headsets are a zombified experience.

Looks like they got venture capital again:

I hope it doesn't end like castAR.

You need to know a thing or two about being a CEO in order to be a CEO. I gather from her last experience she was not a good one. What is the point to be a CEO then. Be a VIce president of Technology or something, do what you do well.
