GrooveME scoops prestigious prize at Digital Entrepreneur Awards

Did they turn up in person to collect the award? How could you tell?
Sir Bob Geldof
He's not shy and he's not retiring - but if he did retire, his GrooveME hologram could keep on gigging

3D sound and vision specialist Grooveme has won the prestigious ‘Best Use of AR/VR (Augmented or Virtual Reality)’ prize at this year’s Digital Entrepreneur Awards.

The company has developed a mind-boggling technology that enables it to turn recorded footage into three-dimensional (3D) holograms, with the added bonus of an audio dimension where the sound emanates from the relevant holographic image, rather than via a Sensurround effect.

One of the first people to get the Grooveme treatment was Sir Bob Geldof, entrepreneur, activist and rock legend, who just happens to be a Grooveme shareholder.

The shy and retiring* "Blessed Bob" was not surprised that GrooveME scooped the award.

“GrooveME has a world class vision for its product and my hologram made me look and sound beautiful (which let's face it isn't difficult!). 

"Standing next to ‘myself’ onstage was weird but the fast expanding catalogue of artists and opportunities around the globe make this an increasingly scalable proposition from the original music and entertainment idea to politics, education, medicine and more. Good stuff Groove,” he said (without once uttering a single expletive).

GrooveME co-founder and chairman Alex Worrall said: “I would like to thank our team members for all their hard work over the years. We are incredibly grateful to everyone for their continued support and making the unbelievable truly believable.”

The company, which appropriately enough has its studios at Knebworth Park, “the stately home of rock”, is currently unlisted but it is possible to invest in the company under the Enterprise Investment Scheme.

Parties interested in invested in GrooveME should contact the company, not Proactive Investors.

* As everyone knows, he’s not shy and although it’s been seven years since his last solo album, he’s not retiring either.
