In October, Google’s Android boss Andy Rubin left the company with plans to run a startup incubator for hardware-focused companies.
Rubin was working on robotics for Google before he left, but no word on what his new fund will focus on.
Rubin will serve as the managing director, and the organisation’s board of directors include ex-Googler Matt Hershenson, former Microsoft executive Peter Barrett, and Bruce Leak, who co-founded WebTV.
Playground Global is a venture capital fund, according to the regulatory filing. No investors were identified in the filing.
