Word is going around that Asustek has plans to spin off its AR/VR business unit to turn it into an independent startup. DigiTimes reports the AR team is known as Glamorfy and writes it's basically the successor of the Asustek's HMI (human machine interface) software department. The unit is getting freedom to operate independently and has plans to attract equity investment to fuel growth.
Glamorfy Taiwan has rolled out a number of AR/VR products, including 3D VR trial makeup, and an integrated VoIP and VR makeup software system.
Glamorfy Taiwan also has been participating in the development of Asustek's AR HMD and MR-ready devices and plans to roll out related software supporting Windows 10 AR devices in the fourth quarter of 2017, said the paper.
