Layered 3D Sculpture Came To Life Using Customized Facebook 3D Photo

According to Patrick Cabral: “I recently finished 3 sculptures for Starbucks Philippines. The actual sculpture is made of MDF. Each animal represents the region where Starbucks get their beans. I decided to recreate it in 3D and created a customized depth map so I can create a Facebook 3D photo. My goal is to provide people with a new way to experience my work when they are not able to see...

Artist Signe Pierce Explores The Chaotic Beauty Of Reality And Its Natural Tefractions

The New York-based ‘reality’ artist Signe Pierce examines the ambiguous intersection between art and technology in the 21st century. Her use of exaggerated light and colour is applied to scenes of the every day as she creates a heightened realism that negotiates between the realm of art and life.

Casual Virtual Reality for All

publication01

Hi we are Paralo!


Virtual reality is recognized often only by VR and technology enthusiasts. When we did a demo in Union Square Park, NY, we noticed that most people have not heard of the virtual reality experience. Only five out of almost a hundred testers knew what VR was. Virtual reality devices are super cool, they turn ordinary games/ movies into a totally immersive 3D experience. We are fascinated by how much potential it has in the near future. However, we are also surprised by how little people know about it.


Most VR devices are either too bulky to carry around or way too expensive. Despite devices like the Google Cardboard, people still have the misconception that a VR gadget is only for tech enthusiasts and therefore they are reluctant to try it. So we decided to make a simple and attractive virtual reality toy that anyone can use to enjoy the excitement of virtual reality. We designed Paralo PLAY.


PLAY is the first truly affordable VR toy. It is a device that allows anyone to view virtual reality apps with just their smartphones. PLAY has a single-piece design so it does not require any assembly process and is easy to use and fun to play with. Made of durable silicone, it is also drop-proof and water-proof. PLAY’s ergonomic shape makes it very comfortable to wear and to take anywhere. It is perfect for everyone especially for kids. PLAY works with both iOS and Android devices and comes in multiple color.
