FROM FICTION TO REALITY
ARuVR began with a film.
In 1995, Frank Furnari, the founder of ARuVR (formerly VRTUOSO), was still in high school when the film, The Lawnmower Man was released. With a story based on VR, it captivated the young entrepreneur and started him thinking. It was the catalyst which started him on a journey.
Over the years, professional experience and successive businesses were all leading towards Frank’s new objective; to create an AR and VR solution that allowed anyone in the world to easily create and consume immersive experiences. From 2015 to 2017, he worked with a team he’d created to work in partnership with two global corporates’ research centres. For two years they developed an immersive VR platform. A platform that would become, with the help of his business partner Marco Moncalvo, VRTUOSO. But this isn’t the end of the story.
Even at this stage, Frank was very clear on the projected path. “VR and AR are two different technologies but they are complementary and eventually they are going to merge,” said Furnari. “VRtuoso will become a true VR and AR platform for enterprise.” And then, finally, in 2022, Frank brought the complementary technologies of AR and VR together under one name and VRTUOSO became ARuVR and all the years of patience and dedication came together.
Today, ARuVR has been used and deployed by many Fortune 500 global companies and over one million immersive learning users.
The arrival of the global pandemic only strengthened the case for a more immersive way of sharing information remotely. And in the past months, ARuVR has had an impressive growth rate as more and more enterprises realise the effectiveness of AR/VR and the company goes from strength to strength.
It really does look as if everyone is saying YES to ARuVR.
