We have an experienced leadership team, and excellent technical contributors.
What are we missing? A person like you, who has relevant Rigging Experience, and who can help to develop and build an application for Apple’s platforms.
Step into the future with our game-changing startup! We're pushing the boundaries of mixed-reality and AI. Using the unannounced MR device, we're crafting a new kind of interactive mixed-reality experience. What we’re building is not a traditional game, but uses elements of what typically goes into a game, including art, animation, AI / ML, and user interaction. Our goal is to create an engaging and emotionally uplifting experience. Our product will be an example of the successful deployment of Affective AI.

If you’re excited by our mission, and if you share our love for mixed-reality and
Affective AI, then let's chat. Together, we’ll be able to bring a new kind of mixed-reality experience to life.
