Snapchat Buying Israeli Augmented Reality Startup Cimagine

Fortune: Messaging app Snapchat is buying Israeli augmented reality startup Cimagine Media for an estimated $30-$40 million, marking Snapchat’s first acquisition in Israel, the Calcalist financial daily reported on Sunday.

Cimagine developed True Marketless Augmented Reality—technology that allows users to virtually place furniture and appliances they wish to purchase in the space of their home, on their mobile devices, at the click of a button.

Cimagine will become Snapchat’s research and development centre in Israel and is expected to rapidly expand its workforce from its current 20 employees, Calcalist said.
