It all started in Summer 2018 with the creation of project “Spark”...
Holonautic was founded by 2 graduates from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), both passionate about the latest immersive technologies. After experiencing state-of-the-art virtual reality for the first time, it became difficult to focus on anything other than the possibilities this new medium provided. Since childhood we have been passionate about video games, and discovered a unique opportunity to fulfill our lifelong dream of combining our creativity with cutting edge technology, to bring something beautiful into the world.
The Future of Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR & AR) presents many challenges yet to be solved. We are convinced that the best XR (cross-reality) experiences can only be crafted by perfectly combining hard sciences (cognitive neuroscience, biomechanics, computer sciences and engineering) with an imaginative and powerful artstyle to submerge the mind completely into an imaginary world.
We want to extend human perception and break physical barriers by creating interactive and immersive experiences, where the only limit is the mind itself.
The name Holonautic comes from the combination of the prefix holo- derived from ancient Greek ὅλος (hólos) meaning “whole” and the suffix -naut derived from ναύτης (naútēs) meaning “sailor”.
Like aquanauts, aeronauts and astronauts before them... Holonauts are pioneers of a new unexplored universe...
