Congratulations! Idea is super exiting but there is some problems about implementation. I just tried Google login and nothing happened after permission screen. I signed up with email and that works. Interface clean and easy understandable. I think it need some performance improvements on client side because my Macbook Pro 16 gb ram is crying now. Good luck!

@ferid_movsumov Thanks for the heads up on Google login. We should have it fixed before the end of today. We'll also look at further improving the web scene performance. Thanks!

Hi Hunters, We built Hootsy because we believe the most natural way to interact in virtual and augmented reality is with your voice and hands. Hand controls are getting better, but we couldn't find tools that made it easy to create the type of voice interactive experiences that we wanted to create, ones that felt like you were talking to another person... so we built it. :) The assistants are built on the web (using Three.js), and can be deployed to an iOS or Android mobile app using our Unity SDK. More recently we built a chat widget similar to Intercom and others, but with the option of voice interaction. You'll see it pop-up on the homepage. We built this to scratch our own itch of wanting to provide better support to visitors while providing the ease of voice interaction. If there are any questions or feedback, please let us know. We'd love to know what you think! Thanks, Dan

One other thing... if anyone is interested in creating their own and not sure where to get started, I recently wrote up a fairly extensive step-by-step guide on our blog showing how to turn a wikipedia article into a VR and AR experience https://blog.hootsy.com/2019/03/...
