About Nomoko

Nomoko’s vision is to enable a seamless interaction between the physical and the digital world by allowing anyone to build spatial applications that truly understand the world we live in — and subsequently make our interaction with these two worlds more intuitive. For this interaction to happen — a robust replica of our world must exist. One that allows for expansion and integration, in order to capture the richness of our physical world — a network of Digital Twins, if you wish. We call this, the Mirror World.

As a company with a history in city-scale 3D modeling, building the Mirror World infrastructure is our long game, enabling anyone to build spatial applications of their liking — from city-scale digital services to AR experiences.

Nomoko has spent the last years interacting with over 250 leading companies in the autonomous driving space, AR, VR and Smart Cities, gaining an insight into the market readiness of these future oriented industries when it comes to the usage of the Mirror World. Buildings being the biggest financial asset within a city, the real estate industry presented an immense opportunity for digitisation.

Today, Nomoko focuses on bringing the first spatial application of such kind to this industry, by providing a more intuitive application to digitise the real estate investment process.

As it turns out, we are also currently looking for innovative real estate development companies to join this journey by becoming early beta testers:

We are extremely excited to welcome our new board members, who join us on our journey as we’re growing our business and beginning our journey of transforming the real estate industry with our first spatial application.
