We are raising money on Kickstarter to build a community and make our open-source technology available to everyone. Kickstarter has a proven track record of accelerating the development of amazing products, ideas and concepts. We hope you will support us in this exciting journey and become a member of our big family.

Our world is ready for a brand new technological adventure. Progress in the electronics industry over the past 10 years is unbelievable. Recent advances now make it possible to build outstanding technical devices with the potential to change the world.

YouLoox is proud that its holographic technology is part of this great tech adventure. Imagine a world where physical goods and services can easily be replaced by holographic technology – think of the enormous benefits for the environment!

We cut down millions of trees every year. Overproduction is making our air and water more and more unhealthy. Look around. What items would you be prepared to give up if YouLoox replaced them with their new technology? A painting, a vase, your TV maybe, your keyboard, your computer? Virtual replacements of these and many other items are already in the pipeline. We are only temporary residents on this planet, and it’s up to us to keep it safe for future generations. Innovative technologies provide the means to do amazing things for the good of the environment, for our children and for mankind as a whole. Let’s start doing them together, and let’s start doing them now.

Once we have sufficient funding, our aim is to release the first beta versions of YouLoox hardware and software within 3 years. However, taking into account the volume of work that remains to be done, we may have to extend the target figure to 4 years.

Before the beta version is fully developed, we will be releasing a number of prototypes that will look very much like the final product.

Please note that the more money we collect, the faster our products and services will go live. Items from YouLoox’s different lines – one for enterprise-size companies, the other for home-use – will be launched one at a time as they become available.

First wave customer options are only available via Kickstarter. As we’re expecting demand to be very high, we recommend you order multiple reward options to support YouLoox innovation. Backer options will be transferable, and if you order several, you’re welcome to pass them on to your friends and family.

  • and Many More!

Please explore Kickstarter Rewards for more details.

The YouLoox Development Kit will be available for Backers with the SPECIAL DEVELOPER package. Because demand is expected to be high and access to learning sessions is limited, we strongly recommend you order this package via Kickstarter. After passing through the lessons successfully, you’ll receive the YouLoox Developer Certificate. This will allow you to work closely with our team and to teach classes of your own.

Moreover, we will be launching regular professional events where community members will have the opportunity to try out new technology before release, to ask questions and receive support from the YouLoox team.

Quality Assurance people who wish to broaden their knowledge of cutting-edge technology are advised to order and check out the same package as the developers.

In fact, this package, with its fascinating learning session and the unique opportunity to meet interesting people, is guaranteed to be great fun for everyone, whether you have a technical background of not.

Our team will be made up of brilliant scientists, engineers and managers. Their names will be announced as they join us. We plan to grow the team to 250 members over 3 years across different regions of the USA and Canada. We’ll also be building a number of operating centres in Europe. When it comes to hiring, our doors are open to everyone – if you believe you have something to offer, you’re more than welcome to apply.

In addition, we look forward to working with students and, with that in mind, bundling partnerships with universities and other educational institutions is one of our major goals.

Finally, we are planning to launch volunteer positions in different areas in order to get closer to our community and listen to your ideas and suggestions.

Our holographic computer technology is unique . In such a rapidly changing industry, providing early-stage hardware and software specifications is extremely risky because we could easily end up with far better product specifications than the ones we anticipated at the start.

However, some things can safely be said. There are only a few ways to display augmented reality and virtual reality technology. One is via optical abstraction using special lenses and a variety of motion sensors in combination with the projection of an actual image. But this is just an illusion. If you remove your glasses, the magic feeling will simply disappear.

Our goal is to remove the barrier between the real word and vision manipulation hardware and reduce any harmful effects it may have on the eyes. Although doing this will require more than one hardware device, the results will be absolutely phenomenal.

What will the final devices look like?

To satisfy the expectations of our community and potential customer we will build a series of samples and invite feedback on the “way to go”. Of course, this will all depend on the final funding – the more we receive, the more options we can explore, and the better the hardware will be.

Operating System and Programming Languages

For the first release we will target the Linux operating system and the core Programming Languages C\C++ and Java. We made this decision with regard to the open-source concept and community.

3D Framework

Holographic Framework We are testing multiple options. At present, we can’t say precisely which direction our work will take. Suffice to say, the aim is to provide enough flexibility for developers to choose the tools that they preferred. However, new technology is creating in mind with new concept and if we have enough funds we will develop our own 3D Framework & Designer.

Networking and Connections

Users will be able to connect YouLoox devices via WI-FI, 3G, 4G, LTE. We plan to develop our own network protocol based on the concept of security and privacy. However, because time is short, we are unlikely to realize this before we launch the first wave of YouLoox products.

Home vs Enterprise Solutions

YouLoox hardware and software will target both markets at the same time. But, in order to get Enterprise companies connecting with customer as soon as possible, Enterprise solutions will be released first. This will allow companies to prepare plenty content for Home users. Note that anticipated demand and limited supply mean that YouLoox Enterprise hardware, software and support will only be available to companies who order the Enterprise package via Kickstarter.

Data Transportation

YouLoox technology requires a significant amount of data transportation, and that can be expensive. Funds permitting, we plan to build our own data centre and thus reduce the raw cost of YouLoox products and services significantly (please see the YouLoox Funding Goal Chart below).

We will release more technical information if our Kickstarter campaign is successful.

Don’t forget to support us via Kickstarter! We need your help!!!

Risks and challenges

Because our technology is so unique, some people might imagine that we’ve set ourselves an impossible task. Nothing could be further from the truth. Our solid grounding in mathematics and physics combined with the latest nano-technologies and a huge variety of useful APIs makes our mission absolutely doable. History has many examples of famous people who changed the world, and with your help, we will follow in their footsteps.

Any criticism the sceptics throw at our technology will simply accelerate our efforts to get it up and running and prove them wrong ahead of schedule .

We will keep our community updated with regular reports on our research and development efforts. Reports will explain everything in detail and present multiple examples of YouLoox holographic hardware and software in use.

In the future, as backers, you’ll have the opportunity to meet members of our team in person and ask them questions about their work and their vision. We are totally community-oriented; everything we build is for you. Growing our community is our blueprint for success.

Finally, as a fast growing company, we are well aware of the many challenges we are likely face. However, we’re also certain that dealing with them will only make us stronger and more committed to the YouLoox mission: to bring life-enhancing technology to every household and ensure that every human being is happier, healthier, and more productive.
