San FranciscoAnd 26 April 2022 /PRNewswire/- FluxoneA global product development company has been acquired PlutoA platform for virtual events where people can hang out and collaborate in the metaverse, in 3D worlds like the moldive Islandsburning man or Edmont Abbey at Austria. This acquisition adds to the company’s growing portfolio of productivity and collaboration tools, including the Real-Time Q&A app, Cyclic.
As the first remote company, Fluxon, founded in 2017 by executives from Google and other leading companies, has focused on creating powerful tools and processes to encourage engagement across time zones. Fluxon designs products for startups and fast-growing companies around the world, and delivers comprehensive development across design, product management, and engineering. Its clients include companies like Google, Stripe, and Zapier.
In 2020, an entrepreneur and investor, generation of generationI contacted Fluxon to create an immersive virtual social experience. He has seen that the shift to remote work has expanded the range of decisions people are willing to make without in-person interaction, from fundraising to meeting friends — but the video conferencing tools available lack an important ingredient: serendipity. The idea was simple: Instead of talking to people in fixed rooms through video calls, what if people could meet anywhere and have more realistic human interactions and chance encounters?
“During the pandemic, you are tired of all the hours of virtual happy hour, birthday parties and corporate meetings. Fun random get-togethers are pretty much dead – you can no longer meet a new, interesting friend, colleague or person,” generation of generationA businessman and investor. “With Pluto, everything is represented in 3D, which means that people can explore their surroundings and find each other at random. This allows opportunities for collaboration and planned encounters in a less structured environment.”
In just a few months, Fluxon has turned the idea into a fully functional product known as Pluto, with 3D worlds that allow users to teleport to concert halls, convention centers, a relaxing beach — and even Burning Man. Participants can navigate, represented by a live video avatar, and through spatial audio, naturally in and out of conversations. Pluto balances realism with fun fantasy worlds that include customization features, fun mazes, and Easter egg hunts.
Katsuya Noguchi And Fatima Saber He co-founded a company to bring Pluto to market in 2021. Pluto gained instant interest from consumers and businesses. For businesses, it’s the antidote to grueling hours and embarrassing virtual events. Provides teams with an online space for meetings, conferences, and collaboration that can be customized in a custom branded environment. Figma, Canva, and community group Xoogler were among the first to host virtual encounters in Pluto’s 3D worlds, which can be customized to the needs of each brand.
“Fluxon has played a key role in creating scalable, high-quality 3D video, audio, and 3D technologies, and we’re thrilled that it continues to expand the reach of Pluto’s metaverse,” Referred Katsuya NoguchiCEO and Co-founder of Pluto Corporation.
Tens of thousands of users have already stopped, attended parties, or got to know each other better in the worlds of Pluto, and there have been more than 5,000 joint and social events. User reviews have been overwhelmingly positive: user reviews say it’s “the best virtual event by far”, an “amazing” experience that leaves people “feeling connected again” and helps teams “be there without being there”.
After the acquisition, Fluxon plans to expand the features and capabilities of Pluto, adding more content such as games and new worlds for users to explore and collaborate. Fluxon also plans to make Pluto available to companies that want to host much bigger branded events – from conferences to concerts. With a global team of developers now behind Pluto, the possibilities for creating new custom worlds are endless.

Pluto allows friends and colleagues to hang out and creates unique opportunities to host fully customizable virtual events. Do you want to organize a place far from the moon?
