Earlier this week, I reported on a new project from Jeri Ellsworth and her new company, Technical Illusions. CastAR is a new augmented reality gaming system that was partially developed by Ellsworth and partner Rick Johnson while working at Valve. When Gabe Newell decided to terminate their employment, the pair struck out on their own to create the next generation of gaming.
The team launched a Kickstarter campaign just three days ago and has as of this morning, surpassed their funding goal of $400,000 by an additional $106,000. With 27 days to go, the project has ample time to reach their stretch goals in which they hope to raise $800,000 total.I will be hosting an interview session with Ellsworth and the castAR team at the end of this month, if there is anything you would like me to ask them, drop me a comment below.
