About Hootsy

Our mission is to make interacting with technology feel as natural as talking to another human.

Who we are

We believe that interacting with technology should feel so simple and natural that anyone from toddlers to grandparents should immediately know how to use it. We've tried for many years to accomplish this with 2D interfaces, but never quite got there. No matter how much we simplified the designs (removing buttons, changing colors, etc.) there was still too much cognitive overhead. Luckily, with the growth of VR and AR, there is an opportunity to change that. We can now create experiences in a 3D world that we naturally understand. However, there is still the challenge of adding realistic voice and hand interactions to these experiences.

It is voice in particular that we feel provides the widest range of potential interactions, so we want to make it as easy as possible for you to add it to your experiences. The simpler we can make it for you to build these interactions and the more human-like those interactions feel, the better. This will lead to an explosion of VR and AR experiences that all of us will just immediately understand and that'll help us get things done quicker and easier.
