Story of Pivo
Frustration & Innovation
Meet Ken. He is an avid photographer and loves to capture everything in 360. Finding current solutions expensive, difficult and mediocre, Ken did what any frustrated inventor would do. He took his kitchen timer, a selfie stick and glued together a dinky, but working prototype. Awesome.
End of an Era. The Birth of an App.
Pretty quickly, his team realized that with robust hardware and a dedicated mobile app the prototype could totally democratize 360 photography. Pivo was born.
Word spread, attracting 360 enthusiasts for beta use. With awesome feedback, Pivo continued to improve and the team begin reaching out to manufacturers to give it a fresh new look.
Pivo's first market test showed good results, but it wasn't good enough for us. We wanted Pivo to be better. We spent that summer looking for a new manufactuer that could meet our high standards.
By the end of the summer, Pivo had finally found a manufacturer with a track record for delivering high quality products on time and on budget. This wasn't another summer fling. It was a perfect match.
With 993 units packed and ready to go (*ahem* still looking for the missing 7...), the team began shipping Pivo to 800 international VR enthusiasts who created over 10,000 scenes (still creating!). With constant feedback, development begin speeding up.
Our second market test saw Pivo being used in ways we could not have imagined. Inspired and excited, we got to work- adding new features like motion tracking, voice activation and awesomely dynamic modes like ManyMe and VS.
