Steve “Woz” Wozniak is a very well known and respected name in technology circles. The man is not only a brilliant engineer and tech geek, but he’s also just an all around wonderful human person. Wozniak is probably best known as the co-founder of Apple Computers. It’s his work on the engineering side that helped mold Apple into the company they are today. Steve is still pretty heavily involved in the tech world and now he’s an advisor for a new 3D emoji startup, Mojiit. If you need an explanation of that, here’s what Mojiit’s website says.
Mojiit enables users to project 3D hologram emojis via smartphones. Users can choose from a range of popular emojis styles to illuminate and share with friends. Every piece of clothing is customizable and interchangeable from your favorite pair of yeezys.
It’s an interesting idea and one that Wozniak says is “going to change the e-commerce space.” With Mokiit, you’re able to project and share 3D hologram emojis via your smartphone. There are a variety of emoji styles which can be illuminated and shared with friends. According to the company, the platform will not only be a great consumer friendly experience but businesses could take advantage of it as well. Mojiit investors include NFL alum Ed Reed. and Entourage and Ballers producer Rob Weiss recently joined the company as Creative Director.
Steve’s role will be to help put together a team of quality engineers to work on the project and attract new investors to the project. Right now we don’t have much more information on the project, no demos or hands-on but it certainly sounds interesting. Sometimes it’s worth watching things that the Woz gets involved in so we shall see how this turns out.
