Bose has just announced the Bose AR SDK, a lightweight development kit for head-tracking, accelerometer, and compass access in Bose wearable audio products. With the Bose AR SDK, novel experiences for music, communicating, learning, traveling, and more are possible.

Bose Ventures is looking for startups that are pushing the envelope to help build some of these new experiences. We are investing in startups that are developing apps, services, and technology that leverage and extend the Bose AR SDK. If you are one of these innovative startups, let’s connect.

 

The Legacy of Dr. Amar Bose

Dr. Bose had a passion for innovation and the people behind it.

He believed that whatever we set out to do, we should try and do it better than it has ever been done before. He also believed that to be better, you had to have the courage to be different. Out of this philosophy, he created Bose Corporation, a company with a history of creating better products through research and innovation.

Bose Ventures now extends Dr. Bose’s legacy by supporting courageous entrepreneurs who strive to do things better, even if it’s very different than what exists today.
