About

For the past 2 years we've been hard at work developing and tweaking our Virtuacast system. 

Virtuacast includes patented technology that creates the illusion of life size holograms that users may view and interact with, then share the resulting videos or photos via social media.

The system requires of a special mat or marker that is set on the ground and an accompanying mobile app. The “hologram” appears where ever the special mat is in view of the mobile device’s camera. These holograms can be of real people; perhaps a famous pop star or athlete, an animal such as the tiger from the Hangover movie or an animated character.

You may have heard about the excitement several years ago when much to the shock and amazement of audience members at the Coachela Music Festival, a hologram of TuPac appeared and performed on stage with Snoop Dogg. Or Michael Jackson's holographic performance at last year's Billboard Music Awards. The Virtuacast system makes it possible to create a similar illusion via your mobile device anywhere you choose.

HOW IT WORKS:

1) Once you have the Virtuacast mat, download and install the accompanying Virtuacast app on to your iOS or Android device.

2) Upon launching the app, you can select a hologram from the starter library. (Grow your library with additional holograms available for download, via in-app purchases.)

3) Point your device's camera in the direction of the Virtuacast mat and press start.

4) View and record the magic of the hologram integrated into your environment. Choose from many amazing options in the ever growing library of holograms. For instance, you can capture a video of your friends interacting with President Obama, or introducing their new pet bengal tiger.

5) With the click of a button from within the app, you can instantly share your new Virtuacast video via Facebook or Twitter.

The heavy lifting is done on this project and we're in the home stretch to get our baby to market. That's where you come in. 

We have a great platform and some cool content, but there's work to be done to port the software over to Android. Additionally, we have to get our mat manufacturing set up and finalize our package design.

With your help, soon people everywhere will be able to experience the magic and fun of creating Virtuacast hologram videos in their own home.

Risks and challenges

Since most of the work is done, and we're down to porting the working iOS software over to Android, the risks are minimal. Any challenges would impact the "when" we launch, rather than the "if".
