OverviewSuggest Edit

8i is a technology company on a mission to make VR human by empowering creators to create compelling and immersive volumetric virtual experiences featuring real people. The Company's proprietary technology transforms regular video from multiple off-the-shelf cameras into a hologram that viewers can walk around in virtual reality and augmented reality, or interact with on the web. This approach, called volumetric VR, is the next step forward in storytelling and human communication as it enables complete freedom of movement, true sense of presence, and real emotional connection with the person users are watching.
