1. What does VeeR stand for?
According to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, “Veer” means to change direction or course. We took the name “VeeR” because first, people would know we are a VR-related product immediately; Second, when people watch VR content, they turn from side to side, changing directions (Veering). So we think VeeR is the most explicit name.

VeeR believes that VR content shooting and sharing will be widely popularized and VeeR was born for the purpose of spreading VR to all four corners of the world.
3. Where is your team based and what’s the background of co-founder?
