What started our journey? With a long career in film production and VFX, Pax had created a successful VR app company in Boulder with very interesting projects for big clients. John had worked in big tech and startups for years, with a core passion around using tech to make tomorrow’s world happen today. When we met one fortuitous fall day in 2019, we immediately connected on the full potential of spatial computing to change the future of computer interaction. Within a week we were on a field trip to LA to explore the state of the art in live VR, places like The Void and Dreamscape Immersive. Within a couple months we had built our initial multi-user AR platform and we demoed it at the Boulder International Film Festival (a mere days before COVID shut everything down). Shortly thereafter we founded POPvr with a vision of making Virtual and Augmented tech truly social and accessible for everyday use, helping businesses succeed and improving all of our lives.
At POPvr, our goal is to use virtual technology to bring people together. And while COVID has accelerated innovation in remote meetings and interaction, we’re ultimately social creatures - hanging out in our basements alone virtually “Ready Player One” style isn’t anyone’s idea of an engaging, meaningful interaction. Human connection is forged through personal contact. We build solutions that enable businesses to reach their clients remotely today, but which also become incredible live personal interactions tomorrow. Whether at conferences, concerts, or museums, we meld the virtual with the real world to make your ordinary event an extraordinary experience.
