We can finally disclose exciting news that we hinted at in a blog post last May: Embodee has extended an exclusive license to its patented Online Try-On℠ technology to a newly formed company, Intervisual Corp.
Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, Intervisual was founded by Embodee’s former chief technology officer, George Borshukov. Working with Embodee CEO André Wolper, George led the development of the try-on technology along with R&D Director Isabelle Haulin, who has also joined Intervisual.
We’re excited to announce that a technologist integral to development of award-winning virtual product experiences for major companies has joined the Embodee team.
Ben Sosinski, who played critical roles in several ground-breaking projects for Nike, including two featuring online product customization, is the company’s new vice president of product and technology operations.
Ben brings more than 14 years of technology development experience to Embodee. In his new role he will work with existing and new customers in their adoption of Embodee’s technology to best meet their current and future needs. He will also work closely with CEO André Wolper in defining the company’s long-term product roadmap.
We're happy for our colleague, CTO George Borshukov, who's changed focus to embark on some new and old challenges in the coming months!
The details of George's new focus are shrouded in stealth mode for now, but we'll be sharing more with you--so stay tuned. What we can say is that while George will greatly reduce his time working for Embodee's existing business, his main focus will be continuing to plumb the depths and possibilities of computer-enhanced visualization.
New York City (PRWEB) — Embodee Corp. today announced the development of a unique process to create vivid online 3D images of footwear and apparel accessories such as handbags, gloves, and hats. The development represents a significant extension of its garment digitization system.
The virtual products can be viewed from any angle and smoothly rotated, replicating a 360-degree video inspection. Another benefit: the products can be interactively revised with multiple design options if brands want to offer customers the ability to customize or personalize based on individual aesthetic tastes.
Embodee’s hometown is basking in buzz about becoming a cradle for technology startups and entrepreneurs.
And not just Portland. New tech jobs at both small and well-established technology companies have led Oregon out of the Great Recession. So rapid has been the growth that some CEOs collaborated on a video to help entice tech talent to Portland to fill mounting job vacancies.
The range of tech companies, as well as entrepreneurs in many fields, was on prominent display last week at the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network’s annual awards dinner.
The Embodee team has been basking in more than sunshine this summer. We’ve enjoyed an unprecedented season of attention: news about receiving a patent for our unique garment imaging technology, recognition for our revenue growth, and the honor of being named a finalist for a prestigious entrepreneurial award. Today brings more welcome attention from the Portland Business Journal and writer Joseph Gallivan.
The print edition headline: “Apparel in the third dimension: With executives from the film and semiconductor industries, Embodee Corp. is taking 3D technology to the apparel world. But is the apparel world ready?”
Embodee Corp. ranks as the 15th fastest-growing private company in Oregon and southwest Washington based on its revenue increase from 2010 through 2012.
Portland Business Journal, which compiles a Top 100 list annually, announced the rankings at a gala Thursday night in downtown Portland. Private companies in all industries were considered for the honor. Embodee’s revenue increased 309.8 percent during the three-year period.
The news follows Embodee’s announcement last week that the company had been awarded a U.S. government patent for its unique process of creating and modeling 3D garments. Large apparel brands that use the process improve how they merchandise and sell products online.

Dynamic image rendering process lowers costs for brands and facilitates digital merchandising and mass customization.
Portland, Ore., June 11, 2013 -- Embodee Corp. has been awarded a U.S. government patent for its unique process of creating and modeling 3D digital garments. Large apparel brands that use the process improve how they merchandise and sell products online.
For the first time, the process makes possible production of an unlimited volume of dynamically rendered garment images at lower incremental costs than conventional photography. Brands can display virtual samples for merchandising to wholesalers and retailers, and finished garments for e-commerce sales.
Apparel e-retailers have always had an Achilles' heel. How do they appeal to consumers wary of buying online because they want to know how a piece of clothing fits?
Even with online apparel sales projected to rack up double-digit annual percentage gains for the next few years, according to Forrester Research Inc., retailers know they could sell more online if they could satisfy shoppers accustomed to trying on clothes before making a purchase.
PORTLAND, OR December 1 – Technology start-up Embodee, whose proprietary online apparel try-on and customization services were developed by award-winning creators of visual effects for The Matrix movies, has launched its second year and expanded services with Hurley, a quintessential youth lifestyle brand. Using Embodee technologies, Hurley’s online shoppers can virtually try-on the full line of Hurley denim styles and washes, and other pants, including corduroys and twills. Now with over 500 digitized pant options to choose from, Hurley customers will benefit from Embodee’s life-like visualizations of best fits from each style and wash on them.
