Samsung, DoubleMe Join Forces

DoubleMe is the brainchild of Heeyoung Kim, Michael Kuczynski, and Albert Kim. The metaverse startup was established in 2015. It primarily focused on providing innovative solutions in the crisp conversion of 2D to 3D videos.

No doubt, DoubleMe is seen as an incremental piece of the block in the metaverse market scene. When the company launched TwinWorld, a metaverse platform focused on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented Reality (AR), everyone was fixated on DoubleMe.

They knew it will grow as a behemoth in the crypto and Metaverse scene. TwinWorld has since then ignited a lot of attention from potential users, partners and investors.

The startup’s focus with AR is to form that synergy connecting the physical and virtual dimensions. And the generous funding from Samsung is a huge help to speed up the company’s growth.

The funds are geared towards improving marketing, staffing, product development, and the like. Furthermore, TwinWorld is expected to morph into its commercial version very soon.

DoubleMe, now worth $4.5 million, is growing steadily and Samsung’s new funding investment is pivotal to scale.
