Portland’s OnTheGo Platforms, a business that  announces a $700,000 seed round from SK Ventures, Rogue Venture Partners, Social Leverage, Portland Seed Fund and GMO Cloud. Also included in this round is a $330,000 commitment from Foundry Group‘s FG Angels AngelList Syndicate, which marks the first investment by the firm’s Syndicate fund on AngelList.

OnThe Go’s aims to improve the Smart Glass user experience by using the glasses’ front-facing camera to recognize gestures so people can “interact naturally with smart glasses.” Using a swipe of their hand, users would be able to bring up apps and then share photos or videos with another swipe gesture.
