VR enabled startup, Proxgy, launches virtual commerce platform

NEW DELHI: Ever wondered what would you do if you could be everywhere, anytime? Launched during the Coronavirus pandemic, Proxgy, enables its users to book a real-world human avatar and navigate the world through that avatar while sitting at home.

Proxgy aims to change the way people navigate through their daily outdoor tasks by using Proxgy through the an app. Proxgy uses patent-pending technologies to provide live video and audio stream to users via a helmet which has a 360 degree rotatable camera mounted on top. The camera access is controlled by the user via a joystick within the app.

Once a Proxgy accepts a user’s booking, the user is linked in a ride-hailing manner to his or her two-way audio, one-way video. Proxgy aims to provide consumers an experience of what it feels like to navigate the real-world like a video game in a first-person view through a camera controlled option. Users have an option to receive the live feeds or cast the feed to some bigger screens for immersive virtual travel and live shopping experience.

This has been ideated and conceptualized by Pulkit Ahuja, a serial entrepreneur, inventor, and owner of multiple patents and author of two books. In a statement, Ahuja said, “Proxgy started as a dorm room service conceptualized for the elderly and other high risk-prone individuals as a pilot in New Delhi during the coronavirus lockdown, wherein these people who were at a higher risk could stay safe at home while their younger proxgies navigated the city for them live using an off the shelf WhatsApp video call, helping them with their daily chores.”

The team has now started expanding Proxgy services across multiple cities and verticals. Proxgies are now available to encompass tasks like shopping, virtual travel, elderly care, real estate viewing, remote KYC, car servicing and generic tasks like errands and many other B2B/B2C services. The team has upgraded to patent-pending technologies from the earlier used off the shelf video calling solutions that provided limited customizations.

Proxgy is currently in beta and is accepting limited users every day.
