Clara has a unique “ABC” cultured background: American, Burmese, and Chinese. As a Chinese, she was borned and raised in Burma and earned a Bachelor’s Degree at age 19. After exploring in the professional field in oral dentistry for four years, Clara came to the US to further advance her education. In May 2017, she obtained a Master’s Degree in Software Engineering from San Jose State University and headed on to pursue the love at the core of her heart—software engineering.  

In her own words, she strives to become an “ultra skilled and creative engineer who can create ground breaking technology” and this is not simply a verbal goal. Clara devotes herself in expanding and deepening her knowledge and skill sets, i.e. high proficiency in programming languages like Java and Swift and knowledge in version control, design pattern implementations, and AWS. Furthermore, Clara has accumulated experiences in mobile development (Android and iOS development) and specialized in backend development. While her past endeavors emphasized on mobile phone sensor technologies and API implementation and development, she is equipped for much more–and that is why Clara is here at Lucid VR.

Why does Clara want to join Lucid VR? “I believe Lucid’s mission aligned with my interests perfectly, [which are] visual, photography, and VR technology.” Given, skills alone can bring greatness, but skills and passion combined becomes a powerful tool for excellence. And this is exactly how Clara envisions to break through her limits at Lucid, by dipping her passion and skills into the ocean of the real market. Since cameras (3D camera, VR camera), VR and AR technologies are growing in demand, Lucid VR is the perfect place for self-driven individuals like Clara to skyrocket personal and professional growth like never before.

Here at Lucid, team members have the opportunity to explore a wide range of assignments where skills are refined and perspectives are broadened. Employees take on responsibilities as if they are running the company. In other words, working at Lucid teaches them to try new approaches while holding accountability for the corresponding consequences. A stably growing start up, like Lucid, offers creative insights, flexible accommodations, and accepts constructive feedbacks. For all of these reasons combined, Clara says, “It is very exciting to be a part of the team to contribute in Lucid’s next ground breaking products!

As 2018 kicks off, Lucid VR welcomes new Computer Vision Engineers on board. More than a Computer Vision company, Lucid VR does not just give you work to finish and report back. Rather, it gives you growth–and that’s for you to keep at the end of the day.

Times have changed in the Tech world, and what was once off-limits because of cost, access or support is now widely, and in some cases freely, available. Open Source, Open Patent and a growing Maker culture that sees no limits to what you can DIY are advancing technologies to the benefit of all. At the forefront of technology that has recently made its way from both garage benches and academic research facilities into a paradigm shifting platform for the masses is Virtual Reality. An exciting technological prospect in its infancy that will grow by leaps and bounds as we enable VR for Everyone.

VR for Everyone

Virtual reality (VR) is one of the hottest growing technology industries. With such innovative and collaborative VR companies developing, the timing of when VR will hit the mainstream is a question that all have asked.

That’s why Lucid VR set out in this blog to brainstorm and spur conversations on how we can make that adoption happen faster.   How do we bring VR to everyone? That is the question.  In this blog, we’ll ask that question to a variety of VR thought leaders and drivers who all, in their own way, are driving towards that same goal of building the VR industry.

Why is Lucid VR pushing this effort? Lucid VR’s product, LucidCam, is aimed to enable this cause of bringing VR to everyone. LucidCam is affordable, mobile, and extremely shareable.

Follow Lucid VR here for monthly subscription to the blog. If you or someone you know driving this VR mainstream adoption, if so, send over an introduction to info@lucidcam.com.

With that, let’s get this discussion started.
