Bitmoji competitor valued at $100M out of stealth! 🚀
Get your Genie
A next-gen Bitmoji competitor just came out of stealth, and is valued at $100M from top investors.

Genies lets you create a digital clone of yourself that reacts to the news in real-time throughout the day and be shared with friends. It's like Apple's new Animojis, but more expressive (and without an iPhone X).  

The creators see this not only as a form of self-expression, but also as a source for news. For example, a Genie could react to news that Elon Musk’s SpaceX landed its Falcon 9 rocket with an avatar shooting into space (watch the video).

So far, over 689,000 people (!!!) joined the waitlist, including Product Hunt kitty (see above).

2018 Prediction: Avatars are about to take off in a major way with advancements in AR and facial recognition technology. Last month's Animoji karaoke sensation is a small preview of what's to come.
