Description

Opuscope is developing Holostoria, the app that will help people and businesses imagine and create their own holographic experiences, starting early 2017. Tailored for cultural institutions, retail and fashion companies, and special events, Holostoria has been designed to empower your storytelling and improve the customer experience. Earlier in 2016, we launched the company by bringing art and history to the greatest number. We designed immersive museum galleries that showcased artworks, accessible via a VR-ready device (PC or smartphone).

History

Being at first a collaboration between Soraya, a History of Art student at Panthéon-Sorbonne university and employee at the Arts Décoratifs museum, and Thomas, a VLC Media Player developer and Microsoft Regional Director, the Opuscope project ambitioned to rethink the traditional museum exhibition.

They assembled a team of 3D experts and history of arts specialists that created a software able to procedurally generate smart scenography for museum galleries, accessibles using a VR-compatible phone or computer. The software was tested and improve thanks to the partnership with the Arts Décoratifs museum an the Louvre-Lens museum.

The startup was selected by the Hacker Unit accelerator, which had a dedicated season focused on VR and MR. That allowed Opuscope to learn from Hacker Unit’ mentors (Paul Reynolds — Magic Leap, Jeff Norris — NASA JPL, Alban Denoyel — Sketchfab).

The team is now developing Holostoria, a software meant for creation agencies that seek to invent new holographic experiences for their customers. Preorders will start in Autumn 2016.
