Im­prob­a­ble has al­ready spread be­yond games. Narula skirts around ref­er­ences to the de­fence and in­tel­li­gence sec­tors, plus an unan­nounced project with a film stu­dio that also in­volves Bossa, be­fore de­cid­ing it’s safe to talk about Manch­ester. The tech is be­ing ap­plied in ser­vice of the gov­ern­ment’s Smart Mo­bil­ity Cat­a­pult to sim­u­late the en­tirety of Manch­ester’s trans­port sys­tems to ex­am­ine cases such as pedes­tri­an­i­sa­tion and con­ges­tion. In­vestors seem to be trip­ping over them­selves: “We went to the Val­ley for a week with three slides,” Narula says, “and we had four term sheets by the end of the week. And the last day we met An­dreessen Horowitz, and Marc An­dreessen kind of made us an of­fer we couldn’t refuse!”
