About Shared_Studios

Shared_Studios™ is a multidisciplinary art, design and technology collective building an Internet you can walk through. With patented and patent-pending innovations in hardware, software, and design, Shared_Studios creates interconnected environments around the world that feel spatially continuous and through which participants can engage naturally, life-size, making eye contact. Our spaces include Portals™, Shared_Playgrounds™ and Shared_Stages™. Shared_Studios is creating a Shared_World, where we all talk, work, collaborate, debate, and play across all forms of distance as if sharing the same space.

Shared_Studios founder Amar Bakshi tells the story of Portals at re:Publica in May 2016.

Portals come in many forms

Portal™ structures include Outdoor Portal_Containers, Indoor Containers, Portal_Screens, Portal_Inflatables, Portal_Buses and Portal_Rooms. We are even able to integrate existing AV systems into our Portals network. Through patented innovations in hardware, software and design, participants can use Portal environments to engage life-size, making eye contact, as if sharing the same space. Learn more.
