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 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.
We’re raising our glasses to company CTO George Borshukov. On Feb. 7, he received more recognition for his visual effect breakthroughs for the movie industry--his second Academy Award for Scientific and Technical Achievement.
“I haven’t been in the industry for 10 years,” he told the audience at a dinner awards ceremony in Beverly Hills, California. “It’s so incredible that the Academy does the research...to look at these technologies and recognize them. It’s truly amazing.”
Is mass customization of products finally on track to become the norm?
Academics and consultants have prognosticated this post-Industrial Revolution, end-of-mass-production era for two decades. They foresaw consumers routinely customizing goods online to meet personal tastes before the products are made.
No overnight sea change happened, however. Instead, companies—from the mammoth to the upstart—have slowly embraced or at least experimented with the approach, especially in recent years. Often this is how revolutions happen. Quietly, momentum builds until the revolutionary becomes the mainstream.
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.
