Microsoft Ventures Exec, Voodoo PC Founder Rahul Sood Leaves Microsoft To Start-Up Unikrn
Sood suggests that his next step will be one with more risk, but perhaps a lot more fun. The new company is called Unikrn, which we can only suspect was derived from "unicorn." In other words, he's probably trying to conjure up something that most would pass off as impossible, or at the very least, improbable and rare. Presently, few details about the new company are being revealed, but he plans to exhibit more in the coming weeks and months. On his LinkedIn profile, he notes: "If you have experience in the gaming space and you’re a talented software developer or designer then feel free to hit me up. We’re building a team in the Seattle area."
From that, we suspect that this will not be another pure hardware play. He distinctly mentions software, and with today's focus on UI and experience, having great hardware is only half of the battle. Whatever emerges, we're sure it'll make waves in the space.
