2021 MJIC Winner

Sky Office

Have you been feeling disconnected with your coworkers while working remotely during the pandemic? This project created a powerful remote-working platform, SkyOffice, where people can build their office environment and “work alongside” the colleagues virtually. In this immersive virtual office, the users are surrounded by other people with whom they can interact if needed, just like in a traditional office. One can customize the desk, chat in the hallway, and hold important meetings in just a few clicks. The mission of SkyOffice is to fundamentally improve how people interact and help people feel engaged while teleworking.
