Travellers have an option to receive the live feeds from Proxgy’s helmet on their app and view it on their phone screen, though a VR device or cast the feed to some bigger screens for an even more immersive virtual travel and live shopping experience.
"Proxgy started as a dorm room service conceptualized for the elderly and other high risk-prone individuals as a pilot in New Delhi during the coronavirus citywide lockdown, wherein these people who were at a higher risk to coronavirus could stay safe at home while their younger, fitter proxgies navigated the city for them live using an off the shelf WhatsApp video call, helping them with their daily chores," said Pulkit Ahuja, Co-founder, Proxgy.
The Proxgy team has now started expanding its services across multiple cities and other verticals such as travel, real-estate and errands.
The team has also moved fast and upgraded to proprietary patent-pending technologies from the earlier used off the shelf video calling solutions that provided limited customizations.
"These cutting edge technological innovations have helped us create a truly immersive and exceptional augmented reality experience for the end-user. Proxgy is now using 360-degree rotation cameras on Proxgy smart helmets, 3D viewing options, VR head controlled camera movements and one to many broadcasting abilities to provide the end-user an ultimate mix of the real and augmented worlds right at their home," added Pulkit Ahuja.
