🛠 What we're building
Holos is the first cross-platform way to organize your ideas in a spatial environment.
The Holos VR/AR application is a personalized and interactive space that enables users to study, plan, discover, and organize content using natural hand- and voice-based inputs. We enable you to import local media and (both VR and web) apps into your Holos collection and bring it into your virtual space in a card-based format via a wrist-anchored menu system. You can also search for curated online content from Wikipedia with your voice, with the ability to find images, videos, and 3D models from additional sources coming soon. Interactions are hand-based and tangible, meaning you can grab a piece of content out of the air, resize it and move it around your environment. You can have multiple spaces, helping you keep your thoughts separate and organized.
We're currently exploring use-cases in education; be on the lookout for more information soon!
Holos is great for daily/weekly schedule planning, organizing a trip, meal prepping, and much more. We’re excited to see how you utilize Holos in your own unique ways!
👥 Who we are
Holos is a group of creators that is deeply passionate about changing the way that we interact with computers. We're trying to get you out of your rectangles 📱 💻 📺 by bringing the computer into our world 🌎 .
We've been incredibly fortunate to recieve amazing support along our journey, most notably from the University of Wisconsin—Madison, WARF, gBETA/Gener8tor, Madworks, and many others.
🚀 Big dreams
We believe that we're at a major inflection point with how we as humans interact with computers. It may sound arrogant at first, but we're working on Holos to do things the right way. We're not going to wait around for someone to create the future that we want. We're going to re-write the rules to create a better future where the machine is an ally, not the enemy.
📝 Guiding principles
We've set four principles that continue to guide us through the developlment of Holos:
- It must not be an isolating experience, and it should include open access to the people and content that you care about.
- It must be beautiful and intentional, such that the experience can inspire creativity, comfort, and focus.
- It must enable access to your 3D spaces across realities, devices, and platforms.
- It must be fun, making "work" feel more like "play," making it easy to let your ideas flow.
💘 We need you
We're looking for people that are willing to test out something new and provide useful feedback for us. We want to design something fun, cool, and useful, and we need your help in doing so. If you sign up below, you'll get access to our beta build, our mailing list, and our small Slack community of like-minded individuals. We'll see you there.
