Founder & CEO of Mach-3D. Our Vision is to offer a social platform to enhance your web and mobile experiences through the sharing of emotions.
Many applications lack “stickiness” because they lack engagement & emotions. People share more and more things in near real – time with their social circles. The screens of our PCs, smartphones or tablets are flat and show us 2D profile pictures. Do we live in a 2D World? How about a richer online identity made of a 3D representation of ourselves, in constant tune with our real mood?
Our core technology, 3DoM™ (pronounced “freedom”, stands for 3D Operated Motion), creates 3D avatars, called Living Portraits™, animates them with real-life and fun emotions and allows sharing through social networks and interacting by sending virtual goods using our cloud – based social platform.
We target the following global markets in both entertainment and retailtainment: B2C: entertainment/social media mobile apps using the avatars on Smartphones and on the web, interlinked through our cloud based platform which allows their interaction and ensures seamless access from anywhere at anytime. B2B: license our technology & APIs to 3rd parties mobile and web app developers so that they can offer more engagement to their user communities. Ex: e-Commerce purchases with your avatar, in-store retail allowing people to try on goods virtually yet realistically with social circle feedback, offering a fun & more convenient experience.
