(TechCrunch)  London startup Improbable has raised $502 million in funding led by SoftBank, with previous investors Andreessen Horowitz and Horizons Ventures also participating. Improbable made its name with its platform called SpatialOS. Launched last year, it lets developers design and build massively detailed environments by using distributed cloud computing infrastructure, incorporating machine learning technology and other advances.
Alongside platforms like Google VR and Unreal Engine, it gives developers a springboard into creating immersive experiences, which many believe will be the future of how we will interact with many services — both leisurely and utilitarian ones — in the future. “Our goal is to build a massive scale infrastructure to redefine how we work on a massive scale,” CEO and co-founder Herrmann Narula said.
