Paracosm was founded in January of 2013 in Gainesville, Florida after Amir Rubin woke up in the middle of night with an idea to map the entire world in 3D. He called on the smartest people he knew, and together they formed Paracosm. For the full story, check out our graphic novel. Later that year, Paracosm was hired as an early development partner for Google’s Project Tango — the world’s first 3D-sensing smartphone. In 2014, Paracosm closed a 3.3M seed round led by Accomplice and became iRobot’s first official investment. After 3 years of working with low-cost 3D sensors and building a powerful 3D reconstruction pipeline, we’ve upgraded our hardware to include LiDAR and are actively developing mobile 3D scanning and visualization tools for construction teams.

Amir Rubin, CEO

Amir graduated from the University of Florida in 2003 as a computer engineer. Since then he has helped build many companies in the field. After graduation, he co-founded Prioria Robotics and worked as the lead engineer on more than a dozen embedded systems projects. From 2009 to 2010, Amir worked as a consultant and developed a prototype stereo-vision system for weighing cattle based only on imagery (for which he holds a patent). In 2011, he joined Shadow Health as employee No. 1 where he handled full-stack dev for v1.0 of Shadow Health's Learning Management System, built and led their development team, and was a major driver in helping the company launch v1.0 of its groundbreaking healthcare-education 3D-simulation product. Paracosm sits at the intersection of Amir’s signal processing, stereo vision, and web-delivered 3D simulation experiences. In his spare time, he's hanging out with his cats, coaching the University of Florida's fencing team, or mentoring young entrepreneurs.
