Mira Secures $1M in Funding

Mira, a Los Angeles, CA-based mobile augmented reality company, secured $1m in funding.

The round, was led by Greylock Partners, Founders Fund Angel and Macro Ventures.

The company, which has raised $2.5m in total funding to date, intends to use the funds to provide more resources to the developer community and bolster its content partnership initiatives.

Founded by Ben Taft, Matt Stern, and Montana Reed, Mira provides a mobile augmented reality (AR) platform and tools that aim to enhance the way humans interact with each other and their technology.
Powered by the Unity 3D game engine, the company’s SDK enables creators to develop AR experiences or re-tool existing assets for use on the Prism headset and its accompanying remote. Developers can also leverage Mira’s technology to create multiplayer experiences, and incorporate the Spectator Mode, which makes the experiences social and collaborative by allowing users to view a Mira Prism experience in real time from their phone or tablet.
The Prism is currently compatible with iPhone 6, 6S, 7, and 8 with support for additional iPhone models and manufacturers coming soon.

Mira announced that initial pre-orders for its Developer Edition Prism headset are now shipping to developers, and the beta for its software development kit (SDK) is now available to download from mirareality.com/developers.
