8th Wall increases the reach of augmented reality (AR) content with its developer platform, which makes it easy to build interactive AR experiences that run on all smartphones. Creators and developers can choose to deploy their content as a native app to both iOS and Android devices, or as a web experience that can be viewed directly in the user’s mobile browser, no apps needed.

8th Wall uses its own hyper-optimized Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) engine to deliver markerless AR content to mobile apps and the web. Features include 6DoF positional tracking, surface detection, lighting estimation and world points to deliver an immersive experience capable of running on any device with a rear-facing camera.

Why join us?

  • Our team previously worked on image search, photos, music, youtube and messaging at Google and Facebook.

  • With only 12 employees we are already doing deals that involve brands like Sony Pictures, Miller Lite and Walmart.
