    One of the biggest challenges for AR headsets like Microsoft’s HoloLens is their bulk. A startup called Mojo Vision wants to make them virtually disappear.

    Silicon Valley startup Mojo Vision

    The company, which just announced that it’s raised $50 million, describes its technology as “invisible computing,” a world that serves up “information when you need it” and lets you connect with others “at a glance, anytime, anywhere, and all while looking like you.”

    “We see a world that’s eyes up and hands-free,” the company says on its website.

    Mojo Vision isn’t disclosing product information

    VR You Ready?
    How do you train 1.2 million employees for an event that only happens once a year? If you’re Walmart, you ask them to strap on a virtual reality headset.

    According to a new Vox story, the retail giant has established 200 VR training academies where employees can don Oculus Go headsets to get a feel for various scenarios they might face while on the job.
