Purpose-Driven Technology

We place the biggest issues about our impact on the planet right into the palm of your hand. Technology has advanced humankind to an unparalleled stage of innovation. And yet it has also fuelled many of our most significant environmental issues. Our technology platform can help resolve these issues by building a global audience of change agents.

The immersive power of Augmented Reality can offer users the sensory experience of visiting the most extraordinary moments in time and remarkable places on the planet, far too often experienced by only a very few. Our technology platform enables AR experiences which transport people to the most unique places, moments, and interactions around the world far beyond their imagination.

By using the mobile app together with our augmented reality markers, these amazing 360° experiences are brought to life for all to enjoy in full 3D, with unprecedented functionality and capability. Through the art of play we transport people from the comfort of their homes to unique locations across the globe.​​​​​​


We work with various partners on collaborative projects to inspire global audiences through the magic of augmented reality.
