(TechCrunch) LA-based Wonder announced today that it has closed a Series A round of funding led by Grishin Robotics and TCL Communication Holdings Ltd. bringing it to about $14 million in funding to date. The startup is building what it claims to be a new breed of “VR-ready” gaming hardware in secret.
Wonder is building what it calls a “new type of portable hardware device that might be considered a hybrid between a powerful smartphone and a gaming console.” Whether the device is more Nintendo Switch or Nokia N-Gage is not yet known, but the company is looking to stock the device with exclusive software and services optimized for the device and will be optimizing the device for virtual reality usage.
