Virtu-o / NPO platform


Virtu-O is a public device displaying messages from non-profit organizations, by overlaying
virtual panoramic views on top of one’s surrounding urban environment.

Virtu-O is one of the first platforms dedicated to non-profit outreach, able to exhibit a variety of customizable messages. With digital stereoscopic imaging, live street recording, audio effects, and two-axis rotation, it allows people to look at their city through a different lens and experience the realities of contextually foreign global issues.

By enhancing the quality informative experience, non-profits are able establish meaningful connections with the community.
