XR Avatar Scanner

A Portable Volumetric 3d Scanner that creates fun, shareable, and personalized hologram avatars for fan engagement or customer activations.

Groove Jones’ XR AVATAR STATION is the next generation of volumetric photography; they engage people the moment they step inside the scanner. This 3d scanner will capture the dazzling vibes of you and your guests in full 360 degrees, creating an illuminating paparazzi-esque moment to be remembered forever.







The XR Avatar Station is a turn-key portable platform that includes:

  • XR Avatar Volumetric Scanner System
    • Full 360 Volumetric Scan
    • High-resolution Texture Capture
  • Customer Aquisition System
  • Media Delivery System via Email or Text
  • Staffing for managing and running at events

The system is simple: you enter the 10′ x 10′ booth-sized scanner and strike a pose. The scanner captures your 3d data while at the same time, taking multiple pictures of your body using over 90 cameras. The system then automatically stitches them together, creating a 3D model that you can share with your friends.

Version 2.0 XR Scanner capabilities continue to evolve.

Groove Jones are working on dynamic new outputs for use at activations which will include full 3d rendered environments.

Groove Jones can now transport your guests to a moment in history or a remote location like the Taj Mahal or on a mountain top. They are exploring themes that are truly unique and never seen before. Consider being placed into a fantasy world or a zombie apocalypse. The possibilities are endless.
