Hyper is building tomorrow's Disney by putting avatar storytelling tools into everyone's hands. Avatar content (also known as VTubing) has broken into the multi-billion-view-per-month category on places like Twitch and YouTube.
This has given a new group of people the power to tell stories and present themselves on their own terms online while also protecting their IRL identities. But VTubing is expensive and complicated: it usually requires a PC, custom models, and specialized hardware. Hyper (YCW21) is an avatar social network (currently on iOS) that makes it easy to start making avatar content without the expensive PC, motion capture hardware, or specialized software. Just build an avatar, shoot, and use our tooling to start telling your story right on your phone.
