Making an attempt to envision the future, Sai is the founder of Scapic, his recent venture that blurs the demarcating line between the real and the virtual.  Most Indians know about Artificial Intelligence but only a few are acquainted with the concept of Mixed Reality.  Blending the physical and the digital worlds, Scapic is a no-code platform for experiences having virtual reality (VR) and  augmented reality (AR) at its core and has been one of the pioneers in the WebXR space, providing users with a platform to create, share an explore VR/AR experiences from a web browser.

Recently, Scapic- one of the first VR/AR tools in India to be built entirely on the cloud- was acquired by the Flipkart Group which is India’s largest ecommerce destination.  Post this acquisition, the co-founders started Cope Studios- a startup studio focused on building deep-tech (a startup company, with the expressed objective of providing technology solutions based on substantial scientific or engineering challenges) & the Metaverse (the concept of a future iteration of the internet, made up of persistent, shared, 3D virtual spaces).
