Everybody has already been confronted to the problem of a windowless room in a dwelling. As they are uninviting, these dark rooms are often underused. WINTUAL’s first challenge was to bring a view on the outside into a windowless room. It was in 2015, when Jean Loup BARRERE had the idea of a virtual window. Frustrated by the fact that he could not enjoy a view on his garden from his windowless bathroom, he thought about a way to improve the comfort of this room.
The innovation of the virtual window consists in its ability to adjust the displayed view to the user’s position so that an impression of depth is created. The illusion is sufficiently realistic to avoid works in order to install actual windows.
In 2016, Jean Loup formed WINTUAL with the help of Stéphanie Le Beuze, a serial and experienced entrepreneur. They developed the first virtual window within the business incubator la Belle de Mai in Marseille.
After some months of research, the two founders decided to expand the product range. WINTUAL launched an interactive advertising screen WIN3D by adapting the interaction technology of the window to an advertising screen.
Today, the startup company is located at the Technopôle de l’Arbois near Aix-en-Provence. In January 2017, the team grew as a sales department and a communication department was formed. The adventure has started!
