Case studies

Gravity Sketch

Gravity Sketch is an intuitive multi-platform 3D creation tool that allows users to create amazing models, scenes and art work. Aware that it had a great solution to take to market, Gravity Sketch first needed to address certain key challenges including securing funding.

To stand out against other players, Gravity Sketch needed to make investors aware of the current status quo of the VR hardware space, what core technologies support its product and the niche that the solution would occupy once launched.

As a result of joining Digital Catapult’s Augmentor programme and working with the programme’s mentors, Gravity Sketch was introduced to potential funders such as Innovate UK, Wacom (Japan) and Super Ventures (USA). As a result, Gravity Sketch found itself in a far better place than before, and was able to further develop the platform and approach potential customers.

Reality Zero One

Reality Zero One’s mission is to design and create a world class end-to-end reality capture and digital delivery platform.

A big problem facing VR and AR creators and the broader 3D industry is the cost and time associated with modelling and creating content from scratch.

Recognising the potential of the platform and its positive impact on the immersive industry, particularly the reality capture segment, Digital Catapult accepted Reality Zero One into the cohort for its Augmentor programme. As part of their involvement in Augmentor, Reality Zero One’s directors received vital insight into how to address key business challenges and adjust their go-to-market strategy.

Since the Augmentor programme, Reality Zero One was invited to demo its platform at Digital Catapult’s Augmentor showcase event. It has received strong levels of early market interest for immersive projects with Virgin Atlantic and Microsoft in partnership with Radio Design.
Reality Zero One has also secured a new founder.
