mixed reality technology that lets you jump into someone else's reality as a full sized 3D hologram

Do you remember the Star Wars holograms?

Transformation / It’s not a sci-fi anymore but a real story that is transforming remote communication. Transmitting people in 3D as holograms makes a generational leap in eliminating the distance between us.

Expertise / We are experts from the video game industry, machine learning and mixed reality. We have been bringing different 3D characters since the mixed reality’s inception However, we have been constantly asked by the customers to bring humans to 3D and we used to say: “It’s too expensive”.

Technology /We developed a method for capturing humans that is work of artificial intelligence, not of 3D artists and programmers. We trained neural networks to reconstruct the 3D head and body from single image. If the camera does not see all your head, it approximate based on experience how it should look like - just as our brains works.

Uniqueness / Existing solutions generally fall into two categories: either they are 3D scans of people using a smartphone with a static model as the outcome, or they are complex studio setups with 20+ cameras for motion capture and 3D video or special depth sensors. MATSUKO uses only a single web camera or a smartphone for capturing completely reconstructed 3D humans talking and moving around. So, just imagine the possibilities of the tech that can extract holographic humans even from already existing videos.

Potential / We know that the time is now and it has a great potential. According to Forbes, it is a trillion dollar goldmine ! Imagine the applications in video games, trainings, coaching, marketing, healthcare, remote medicine, co-working, holographic memories, 3D video streaming, education and telepresence in general.

Mixed reality's killer app

Mixed reality is predicted to be the 4th wave of tech after PCs, broadband internet and smartphones. We believe that the killer app is the 3D telepresence.
What is the secret sauce? We can make it possible with one camera using convolutional neural networks.

Imagine that you can interact remotely with your kid or colleague in 3D as living holograms and seeing them in their full presence in your physical space, just like in the Starwars.

Before the 3D telepresence, we were developing videogames and interactive VR/AR/MR installations. We have been bringing 3D characters to life since 2010.

Think of them as of smart robots
without the physical complications of having a body.
