MassChallenge Switzerland awards Diamond prize to promising VR and AR startup
LAUSANNE, 17 November 2017 — Moka Studio has been honoured with the first prize of 100’000 CHF for its unique technology and solutions to impact the virtual and augmented reality industries. Moka Studio has invented a cutting-edge technology in collaboration with the EPFL to clone the full human body movement in the digital world in real-time. With the contribution of MassChallenge, Moka Studio will further develop its technology, market its core product, a 3D animation software, and invest in research and development to enter the VR and AR markets.
When launching our software Mosketch in May, we wanted to make 3D character animation intuitive, simple and fast. Today, we are releasing the latest update of our software, Mosketch 0.16, and we hope you will be as enthusiastic as us about the new features, the Ghosts and Mokto, the new branded character.
When creating movement, it is now possible to display your character’s ghosts at different times in the animation. You can feature the current frame and superimposed previous and successive poses easily with a color code to better control the final animation result.
This technique will help you gauge…
We are really proud and honored to be named a Top-12 Startup and given the chance to compete in the finals of MassChallenge Switzerland 2017.
Out of 75 runners-up, we were selected by a panel of experts judges and we will now move onto the final judging round, ending on November 16, 2017 when MassChallenge Switzerland announces the winners.
Over the course of the program, Moka Studio defined its new vision to achieve a greater potential and impact. With our cutting edge technology, we will bring motion to virtual humans. The company already applied the technology to launch an innovative 3D animation software, Mosketch Light.
We’ll share more information in the coming weeks. Follow us to get the latest news!
Moka Studio will be hosted on Wacom’s booth (booth number 2.006) during the MIFA.

Moka Studio launches Mosketch™
Martigny, Switzerland (3rd May 2017) — Moka Studio has launched its new software Mosketch™ Light in Early Access. The software is now available on its website www.mokastudio.com. Mosketch™ Light reinvents the way 3D animations are created. It by-passes the tedious and often technical process of creating so called control-rigs, which traditionally are used to animate 3D models. With Mosketch™ the artist is empowered to control the full cycle of production. It is as easy as creating a 3D model, importing it in Mosketch™ and starting animating by intuitively sketching poses. Mosketch™ also simplifies the animations methods…
On September 3, 2016, Moka Studio was invited to present Mosketch at the Connected Ink event in Berlin, Germany.
We met a lot of great people, got a lot of attention and collected great feedback.
We demonstrated how to animate 3D characters on a Wacom Cintiq 27 HD Touch using sketching, inverse kinematics and forward kinematics. Additionally, Mosketch’s touch interface (together with a Cintiq) made it really easy for beginners to rotate, pan and zoom the 3D view.
Moka Studio develops innovative and cutting-edge software for 3D character animation.
