After delighting millions of people with new ways to accurately capture, share and re-experience life in 3D and VR, we are working on an exciting new project.
Our computer vision technology is no longer available for licensing and the Seene iOS and Android apps have been taken offline.
We’d like to say a big thank you to all of our wonderful Seene users, who proved to the world that anyone can create beautiful 3D content instantly on their smartphone. We are looking forward to what’s coming next!
