Description: 8i is a volumetric video technology company on mission to enable people to experience human content and each other in the most realistic way through holograms. There is currently a lack of real human content in immersive computing, and we’re solving that problem by providing the easiest way to create, distribute and experience human holograms that look real and feel as if they are in the same room. Our proprietary technology transforms video from an array of cameras into a photoreal hologram of a human with real volume and depth, that can be viewed from any angle, on any device for augmented, virtual or mixed reality. We provide developers and creators with tools to integrate these holograms and enable a broad range of immersive experiences and apps with real people.We recently launched our mobile AR app Holo on iOS and Android, to demonstrate our volumetric video technology by letting people add holograms of celebrities and animals into their real world and take videos and photos they can share with friends. Founded in May 2014, 8i is based in Wellington, New Zealand, and Los Angeles. Learn more at and join our team:
