Mobeus: Revolutionizing Telepresence and Self-Expression with Innovative Transparent Computing Technology
Mobeus, a startup based in Sparta, New Jersey, is making waves in the tech world with its innovative product, Airglass. The product is a video and audio communications tool that enhances virtual meetings by using transparent computing. It is a user-centric computing scheme that separates hardware and software to convert desktop software into a transparent, glass-like layer, giving the user the impression of looking beyond the display screen. The company has submitted around 70 patents, with 12 already issued and being pursued internationally. The Airglass product serves as both a commercial product and a way to test the technology in the market.
Mobeus was founded when the COVID pandemic highlighted limitations in the existing telepresence systems. The founders began working towards something foundational that could be a product and a platform. The team figured out how to turn the whole front of the computer into an interactive 3D presentation and turn the entire display of the computer into immersive glass.
The company is using Airglass to take telepresence places it has never been before and believes that the product will revolutionize how people express their creativity. The user experience with Airglass isn’t as immersive as with virtual reality or augmented reality, but it meets consumers right where they are right now. The company does not think this technology will replace VR headsets; however, when using this technology, the screen becomes 3D instead of 2D, introducing a new way to operate the computer and a new way to communicate and collaborate.
Mobeus has 40 employees, with 10 of them living in New Jersey. The company’s funding came from some ultra-high net worth individuals and Accenture Ventures, according to Richie Etwaru, co-founder and chief creative officer at Mobeus. The company is now one of the most innovative startups in New Jersey, offering a great example of how a small startup with a big idea can disrupt an entire industry.
