Jeri Ellsworth is among the world’s foremost AR luminaries and serves as the founder and CEO of Tilt Five – the only AR gaming system on the market today. Jeri’s love for invention began with building race cars in high school and then moved to designing hardware including the Commodore DTV which fit the entire circuitry of the C64 in a joystick. Jeri has wide-ranging experience from video compression for TiVo to navigation systems for Astra orbital rockets to high-volume toy design for MGA & NSI. In 2012, Valve hired Jeri to found its R&D team, which developed the technology underpinning the popular HTC Vive VR headset. There she also worked on the AR technology that formed the foundation of Tilt Five, which she founded in 2019 through one of the most popular AR Kickstarter campaigns.
