M.Eng alumnus Han Jin, founder and CEO of Lucid VR was recently featured in Inc. ’30 under 30′ list. Lucid VR’s first product is the $499 LucidCam, a virtual reality camera that lets users capture the world in 3D.
“It is among the first virtual reality cameras geared toward the average consumer,” said Jin.
The camera converts the world that it sees into three-dimensional photos or videos that can be viewed through Google Cardboard or Lucid’s $30 phone case. The LucidCam acts like a GoPro in that it captures experiences from the user’s point of view. Jin personally uses the LucidCam to stay in touch with his family all around the world.
“Sharing experiences through normal pictures is great, but it doesn’t really show them how I’m living life,” Jin says. “This is the closest you’ll get to feeling like you’re right there with somebody.”
Congratulations Han Jin!
