Anyone else following the head-spinning and product-spinning evolution of TSI (Turing Space Industries)?
As best I can tell, TSI is a collection of ex-Nokia execs attempting to build first ultra-secure mobile devices, and now attempting to build AR mobile devices so we can all live in Ready Player One.
They haven't done much except stumble in the marketplace, but I have to admire their audacity and dogged independence.
I got on their mailing list years back and sometimes get updates, which make for entertaining cyberpunkish reading:

"The focal point of this newsletter is to bring the sibling of K3-XR to the limelight - the HubblePhone K7-XR Krypto. It is also the brainchild of myself and TSI’s Chief Industrial Design Officer, Mr. Paavo Pietola. HubblePhone K7-XR Krypto is fully powered with next-gen decentralized consensus governance and crypto assets trading. The first killer app running on the HubblePhone K7-XR Krypto is AOX Universe (see AO:X white paper), an artificial reality powered 3D world. K7-XR integrates industry’s best AI and AR tools allowing participants to build 3D objects on the fly. These 3D objects serve 3 purposes, first as an artifact, one that carries both fungible and non-fungible characteristics for unique trading on the blockchain; second as architectural elements, structures superimposed to our immediate physical environment to enhance the augmented city view through K7-XR; third as a virtual representation of a physical object from the physical world. While the crypto token, AOX, was designed to be managed by the users right on the 5G Blockchain HubblePhone K7-XR Krypto’s unique cold wallet, one that is guarded by the insulated Upper-deck of K7-XR Krypto, AOX will potentially be traded against other cryptocurrencies through K7-XR Krypto’s on-device decentralized crypto exchange, powered by the BPBFT-FDPoS consensus manifested AOX Parallel Chain."
