What makes this experience unique and immersive..


People said they are “unfettered” in this experience. Gotan lets you easily walk around in the 130ft x 130ft space, with the HMD on your face. But you would not bump into walls or physical objects.


Our system leads you to explore in your office or your own room again and again without being bored. It gives your space a whole new look in the virtual space.

Boxy World

Everything becomes boxes/voxels. With Project Tango, our experience makes every wall and object composed with boxes. A lot of people said it’s like the feeling living in the Minecraft world.

Hand Tracking

Project Tango has motion tracking camera and depth sensing camera in front. Within 1.6ft to 13ft, the player could either use their hands or any object to interact with the virtual world.

About us

trying to make mixed reality become part of the future

We are Gotan, our goal is to create a mixed reality experience using the Google Project Tango tablets on a head mounted display to create a new reality using our physical world.

We want users to be aware of their real world space and other people in it. Users will feel safe and comfortable moving through this space while able to interact with virtual objects. The final application will offer unique experiences each play through.


We work hard. We work fast.
