The creation of MATSUKO, the world's first holographic presence app

Maria and Matus shared a passion for technology and innovation. They attended a talk by Zoom’s CEO Eric Yuan in San Francisco in the summer of 2017, and they were inspired by his vision of transforming the way people communicate and connect in the digital age. 

Maria was an artificial intelligence expert, building emotional models for social robots to bring the ultimate experience of human-computer interaction. Matus was a creator of Assassin’s Creed, a 3D specialist, who connected millions of players in online multiplayer games. They wondered if they could combine their skills to create something amazing: a real-time app that would allow people to interact with holograms of each other, just like in ‘Star Wars’.

They started working on their idea, and soon they realized that they were not only creating a cutting-edge product, but also a powerful social impact. They wanted to bring people closer, to strengthen relationships and collaboration, and to make virtual meetings more engaging and immersive. That’s how MATSUKO was born. 

Today, it is the world’s first holographic presence app, and it is changing the way people communicate across distances. MATSUKO is more than just a name; it is a symbol of people and their potential to create amazing things together.

Our mission is to bring the feeling of presence to remote communication
