Founding StoryI conceived of this idea as on the course of my honeymoon. My new wife and I were immersed in amazing scenery and unique experiences, but when I came home, I found that I only had disconnected pictures to remember the trip by. There was no way to truly record our experience and capture the excitement and joy we felt. Knowing there had to be a better solution, I developed a prototype and exhibited at the Samsung Electronics Contest. My experience must have struck a chord with others because I was selected to participate in C-Lab, an internal incubation program for Samsung Electronics. My experiences in C-Lab allowed me to develop a new prototype, after that I spun off from Samsung and made our own company.
Company DescriptionLINKFLOW is the world's first 360° wearable camera, 'FITT360,' designed specifically for virtualization of personal experience. Our product can also rapidly virtualize existing recordings using the 360° characteristics of the next-generation Vadicam 'FITT360 SECURITY' VR Virtual Mart, "FITT360 Market," which enables individuals and companies to easily and conveniently create VR images and promote business through VR.
After we spun off from Samsung Electronics in October 2016 we attracted investment from Lotte Accelerator. We are currently collaborating with Facebook in order to develop the facet of our products that can create first-person 360 VR images. This collaboration will allow users to upload their own experiences as 360° images to their Facebook accounts, letting them share their first-person experiences with friends, families, and followers.
We are also collaborating with the Lotte Group to distribute our products, in addition to virtual-mart products of distributors such as Lotte Mart, etc.
