Episode 25 : Jeff Powers – Challenges of AR Hardware Startups

June 22, 2021

In this episode of the AllThingsXR podcast, We have a conversation with Jeff Powers. Jeff has dedicated the last decade to enabling devices to see the world in 3D, in realtime.

He co-founded Arcturus Industries (http://arcturus.industries), which is partnered with Valve, and builds state of the art in 3D vision for AR/VR devices — everything from head and controller tracking, to 3D scene mapping. Arcturus Industries is hiring for those who may be interested. Visit https://arcturus.industries/jobs

Jeff is also a co-founder of Occipital, which built the well-known Structure Sensor — a 3D scanning accessory for iPad, RedLaser (which was acquired by eBay), and Canvas — an application for interior 3D mapping for home improvement.

He’s been an angel investor since 2010 in areas adjacent to mobile computer vision. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and a Master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence, both from the University of Michigan. Before becoming an entrepreneur, he worked at the National Security Agency (NSA), but sadly, can’t tell us whether UFOs are aliens or not.
