Keeping people connected

But where others have created digital assistants that seem to take on their own persona, we use artificial intelligence and machine learning to create a digital assistant that constantly learns about what you like and what you want, to eventually be as helpful as possible, in a non-intrusive way to help you make the most out of your augmented reality experience.
You can dismiss the assistant at any time, and interact instead with other people you know on the App, talking, moving and engaging with their lifeline Avatars — in fact we recommend you take advantage of being able to see, hear and interact with others just as you would in real life!
We think that it’s perfectly acceptable to want to find a way to keep connected to people, even in a world where remote is not just possible, but necessary. In a world where we may be forced to be cut off from each other physically, we can still find ways to remain connected digitally, yet with as much of our humanity kept intact.
Media professor Douglas Rushkoff once said:
“The real reason why digital technology will continue to compromise human cognition and well-being is that the companies dominating the space are run by people with no knowledge of human society or history.”
We do agree that keeping things only digital and only virtual may put us in danger of losing our humanity. And so we develop in this space, always reminding ourselves to learn about human society and history. With Augmented Reality, and keeping to the principles of what defines us as people, we hope that digital technology preserves our humanness, instead of diminishing it.
So the next time you’re thinking about Facetime or Zoom, and are feeling tired of not being able to feel like the person you’re talking to is next to you, why not pick up OVR and try see how it feels like to be in the same space, without being in the same room?
