IMVERSE is a spin-off from EPFL developing software and providing services for photorealistic Mixed Reality content creation. Our volumetric solutions reduce the time and money spent on pre-production phases of Virtual Reality movies and Hollywood movies by a factor of 10. This is only possible thanks to our proprietary volumetric graphics engine and our easy and fast process to transform a single 360-degree photo, from any camera, into a 3D VR/MR experience with live hologram actors and VFX.

2016 Boston Silver Winner

Mobile entertainment has gone beyond sharing videos and playing Angry Birds; millennials are enhancing their videos with facemasks and playing Pokemon Go in Augmented Reality. Escher is going beyond these simple effects to provide a true interactive 3D AR engine for developers. Whether it be turning the floor into lava, playing ball with a digital pet, or having a parrot land on your shoulder, Escher is powering the future of 3D interactive mobile entertainment

2016 Switzerland Silver Winner

We provide fast motion sensing based on 3D imaging . Our CMOS sensors promise to revolutionize automotive safety by making LIDAR functionality affordable ; they also enable autonomous industrial vehicle and smart buildings that adapt to occupancy.
3D imager characteristics
• resolution ( > 1.5 mm distance, 160x120 pixels imaging),
• accuracy (operations under bright or dark lighting condition),
• medium range (>50m, VCSEL arrays s),
• speed (>300-1000 fps)
• low cost (50-250$)

2015 Boston Silver Winner

Our blue-sky transportation solution serves people in low-density cities by providing access to the places they want to go. For the healthcare world that means providing large patient populations with direct and efficient access to clinical services. Easy to use, automated, reliable, and friendly.

RubyRide increases access to facilities, practically eliminates the opportunity for fraud and mis-use, and empowers sponsors to measure effectiveness.

Everyone gets what they need.

2012 Boston Silver Winner

Stress is a silent killer. Where objective data is now critical throughout medicine and daily life, diagnoses and treatments of stress rely exclusively on subjective reports to evaluate symptom severity and trends. Neumitra (noo-MEE-tra) helps monitor and manage acute and chronic stress with wearable and mobile technologies for health, performance, and happiness. We compute recurring reports of personalized health to aggregate analytics from one person to thousands. Together we’ll solve stress.
