Kaleidoco announced the Particle Ink metaverse last April, which combines AR and Web3 entertainment elements. Particle Ink received much attention, and the company raised $7.1 million from the blockchain gaming community.
Kaleidoco was founded by Jennifer Tuft and Cassandra Rosenthal, who have many years of experience in the movie industry. The company designed Particle Ink as a platform that strengthens human communication and combines Web3 and augmented reality elements. Particle Ink, defined as “2.5-dimensional”, will offer its users both a GameFi and an interactive movie experience.
The company’s investors include Animoca Brands, GameFi Ventures, Gemini, Jane Street, Nexo, HexTrust, and The Seelig Group. SuperChain Capital, Merit Circle, and Adit Ventures.
Jennifer Tuft and Cassandra Rosenthal are not only successful entrepreneurs but also artists. Jennifer Tuft talks about the artistic side of their work and how they decided to start this business:
“When Cassandra and I experienced the LightPoet’s installation in 2017, we instantly knew that this was something we wanted to build into the transmedia property of the future.”
“The richness and emotionality of the characters and art coupled with the seamless and invisible application of the technology was unlike anything either of us had seen before. We were immediately drawn to this world, not just for its creativity and beauty but also for its purposeful and impeccable application of technology.”
“Particle Ink promises an interesting experience, and it is possible to experience some of it right away. Ticket sales for the approximately one-hour Particle Ink: The Speed of Dark sessions have started on Particle Ink’s website.”
