We back founders connecting the physical world - rethinking the topology of computing to help people and objects move better
Thanks to ultra-cheap and ubiquitous edge computing devices, the networked smartphone, nearly everyone is walking around with a supercomputer in their pocket. There are sensors on every person, in every building, factory, vehicle and object.
Emerging location-based services are now mass market - Waze and Uber are the first major instances and the potential impact on transport, commerce (and advertising) is huge. We're excited to see robotics and machine vision driving demand for precise understanding of location, leading to enriched 3D maps and better ways to deliver real-time location and status.
We expect to see the car emerging as new platform and look forward to seeing the technology that will provide 3D vision capabilities and next-gen GPS to allow them to operate safely. This will drive new applications across vehicles, drones and industrial automation.
