With a deep background in video, machine learning and large scale systems, we’re building an immersive video calling platform that helps friends and families feel like they're together, no matter where they are. A fun, and complex technical challenge requiring a broad set of skills.
Founded by seasoned entrepreneurs, ex-Googlers and backed by some of the valley's well-known leaders and visionaries, we’re designing the software and hardware that will shape the future of video.
Why join us?
Seasoned founding team with multiple startups & successful exits. Most recently, Siva and Sudha, our co-founders, sold their computer vision video search company, Baarzo, to Google. That technology now powers Youtube, Google.com, Google Photos and Nest video search.
The rest of our founding team is best in class from Google, Pinterest, etc... and MIT, Cal, and Stanford.
Work with meaning.
We're working to bring families and friends closer through rich immersive 360 video chat. A platform to help them feel like they're there, even from far away.
When I demoed our product with my kids and my mom, grandma said
wow, it feels like I'm there, the only thing I can't do is give you a hug!
Video calling in the home is broken, it remains reduced to a mobile experience. We all deserve better. Let's fix it.

We're working at the intersection of software and hardware including real time object detection/tracking, large scale processing of 360 video data, Android development, embedded systems
Great investors with rich connections.
We have raised a sizeable seed round from some of the best leaders in the valley across Google, Apple, Whatsapp and Stanford. Scott McNealy, Scott Cook, John Giannandrea, Ben Gomes, etc...
