One of the cooler demos we saw at the Glazed conference last month was by APX Labs, a Virginia startup that’s building neat industrial applications for Google Glass and Epson’s Moverio. Now comes news that APX has hired Eric Johnsen, most recently the head of Google’s Glass at Work initiative, as its director of business development.
We reported a few months ago that APX Labs was one of Google’s first five development partners. Now it’s hired away Google’s business evangelist. Good get.
APX Labs, incubated by Deloitte, has already raised $10 million in a venture round led by New Enterprise Associates.
