Who we are

We’re a tight-knit team of people crazy about AR and its power to transform the world.

Learning is at the core of everything we do and we are passionate about educating people about AR. We also have a lot of fun trying the latest immersive technologies and we want to share that fun with everyone.

We are strong believers in diversity: it is not only core to our team, but also a core strength of our entire ecosystem: developers, partners and platforms.
