In talks with Sai Krishna VK:
1) Hey!, Sai Krishna VK, it’s great to have you on board. Tell us about yourself
Hi!, I am Sai Krishna VK, founder of “Scapic”. My journey began during my undergraduate days in Bangalore, where I previously founded ventures in the fields of education technology and Artificial Intelligence.
2) Tell us about “Scapic”
“Scapic”, is built on two technologies, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. At “Scapic”, we often say, VR can bring you anywhere and AR can bring anything to you. In context, making them seem like they are with you. This can happen by wearing a headset, or in a more limited way by looking through the viewfinder of your smartphone. We are trying to make AR/VR experiences as simple as writing a blog.
3) You had previously started an edtech startup, what is it all about ?
My tryst with entrepreneurship began during my college days. My first venture was called “Aeriem“. We made and distributed Learning Management Solutions (LMS ) for institutes to utilize digital course ware maintenance. The product was rolled out to thousands of students across Karnataka.
4) How was “Scapic” conceptualised ?
“Scapic”, really started out as a problem we all faced in the team. As discussions were carried on we pondered over the question; “What if computers were not limited to the screen they have?” This led our entry into Virtual and Augmented reality. We then discovered that the technical skill set required in the field was incredibly high and limiting.
