2. Quidient


Founded: 2017

“Quidient Reality™ engines enable devices like smartphones to capture photorealistic 3D models of any scene or object on earth. The pioneering platforms are capable of Generalized Scene Reconstruction (GSR), which is an important new category of 3D Imaging. GSR engines will become critical components of Web 3.0 (the Spatial Web).

Quidient Reality engines are actually five-dimensional (5D) in that they record the three linear dimensions of matter (3D) concurrent with two directional dimensions of light (2D). This revolutionary approach enables devices like smartphones to create complete, visually accurate models of any scene or object, including those that are shiny and transparent.

Transformational applications that have been “around the corner” for years like digital content creation, automated visual inspection, and augmented reality (AR), will be enabled by GSR. As the disruptive technology becomes widely deployed, billions in economic value will be released in markets including entertainment, mobile, consumer products, insurance, defense, automotive, healthcare, construction, and real estate.”
