Our team at Looking Glass is building the first great hologram company of the 21st century, charting a course out of flatland for all.

Founded in 2014, we’re headquartered in Brooklyn, NY with additional operations in Hong Kong. Back in 2018, we launched the world’s first desktop holographic dev kit. In 2020, we launched Looking Glass Portrait, the first personal holographic display. And during the summer of 2022 we announced the world's largest holographic display, the Looking Glass 65" and the first way to share holograms on the internet on our Looking Glass Blocks platform. Yeah, we really love holograms.

Today, Looking Glass is committed to helping the world’s biggest brands, organizations, and millions of individual 3D creators around the world complete their journey into the holographic future. Our ultimate goal is to bring holograms to everyone. We think it’s going to be bigger than the shift from radio to television, or the shift from black and white to color. And we’re going to get there together, no dystopian futures allowed.
