You can download Volu from the App Store today

Today, is the day.

Volu is finally available to download from the App Store. From today, you can capture your own volograms using only your iPhone and no additional equipment. And you can start here 👉 Volu by Volograms on the App Store.

This is a huge milestone for Volograms, not only because our amazing team has dedicated a huge effort to make Volu a reality, but also because its the realisation of our mission: bringing volumetric video capture closer to everyone. We believe that user-generated content is going to be key for the success of the whole Augmented Reality…

1st - Friends & family. 2nd - Private beta. 3rd - You!

It’s only been a few months since we came out of stealth mode and announced Volu, the first app that allows users to capture people in AR. This week, we are opening our beta to any iOS user.

We believe Volu will unlock user-generated content for AR, but for that we need to nail the user experience: how do you integrate 3D capture and AR content playback without getting everyone confused? How do you flow from 2D video to AR with a seamless experience? We, of course, had some ideas (some of us are very opinionated 😅), but we needed…

While content creation is only available to designers, artists and other professionals, AR will not go mainstream.

If you analyse when each media platform reached massive success, you will find a common denominator: user-generated content. When users have the power to create content, adoption grows exponentially. When this happens, platforms become mainstream and impactful and have the potential to change the way we communicate.

Experts and all big-tech companies agree Augmented Reality is the next relevant platform… but is there an easy way its users can create their own content?

Unfortunately, the answer is no.

Creating content for AR is still fairly complicated. Given the 3D nature of the real world, AR content also needs to be…

TL;DR: new year, new goals, new logo!

Today, we are refreshing our logo and our whole visual identity with a vibrant, creative and modern look. We have been brewing this change for a few months and we couldn’t be happier with the result. Nevertheless, it was hard for us to say goodbye to our original logo, which has been with us since even before launching the company. And it was especially difficult for me… because I designed it 😅. Let me tell you a bit more!

When Jan, Kostas and I decided to spin out of TCD, we needed to come up with a name for the…

Me he tomado la libertad de traducir este post al español, os dejo con él:

Tras unos meses operando sigilosamente, por fin podemos anunciar que Volograms es una realidad. Como algunos sabéis, Volograms es una spin-off del Trinity College Dublin y nuestra misión es que cualquiera pueda capturar contenido real en 3D. Nuestro sistema transforma una serie de vídeos grabados desde distintos puntos de vista en hologramas volumétricos, vologramas, que se pueden integrar en aplicaciones de realidad virtual o aumentada. Y lo mejor es que funciona con las cámaras colocadas de distintas maneras, en interiores (como en un estudio) o…

Hace dos meses emigré. No es la primera vez que vivo fuera de España pero sí es la primera en la que no tengo billete de vuelta. A partir de ahora podéis contabilizarme entre los jóvenes super formados que salen del país a buscarse la vida (si es que mis recién cumplidos veintidiez años me permiten todavía considerarme joven). No me malinterpretéis, ha sido una decisión relativamente sencilla: un puesto en una universidad prestigiosa y bajo la dirección de un investigador de renombre, ¿cómo iba a decir que no? Con el doctorado recién acabado y casi sin opciones de seguir…
