8i’s Holo App Adds AR Spiderman to Your Photos
Holo App developer, 8i continues to amaze people with its immersive capture technology, partnering with important companies and legendary astronauts.
Mix Your World with Holograms
The company announced that it is currently creating a new technology for consumers, it’s a new app called Holo that allows people to take pictures or videos as 3D holograms. 8i teamed up with Sony Pictures to provide fans a Spiderman hologram from the coming film so they can add him to their own pictures and videos, this in order to promote both the new technology and the film itself. The Holo app is able to insert a hologram into your image or video while you’re in camera view.
“People are creating, augmenting and sharing content like never before directly through the cameras on their phones,” says Steve Raymond, CEO of 8i, in the press release for the new development. “With Holo, we’re introducing a new way to create and express yourself using holograms of real people combined with the AR capabilities of smartphones. Until now, it’s never been possible to direct your own videos using recognizable characters and celebrities and we’re seeing lots of creative storytelling from Holo users.”
The Sony partnership with 8i is a demonstration of both companies’ desire to implement good and exclusive content for the Holo app. The app already has content from Cosmopolitan, go90 stars, and the library of options is about to get wider as it gets to major social networks. The app is currently available for free on Google PlayStore for Android devices and on the iOS Store for Apple devices.
