We empower the pursuit of meaning
We build and share to enable thought-provoking Revelations.
Revealing something new about our collective humanity.
Reminding us what it means to be alive.
Founded in 2015 in San Francisco, Penrose’s mission is to empower the pursuit of meaning. We focus on building frontier technology infrastructure, such as our patented spatial computing development platform, Maestro, and then packaging these frontier technologies to consumers with an emphasis on natural, intuitive and human design.
Our award-winning experiences are available on a wide variety of platforms, including Sony Playstation, Oculus, Steam, HTC Viveport and Google Daydream. Experiences include The Rose & I, Allumette and Arden’s Wake, which won the first Lion for Best VR at the 74th Venice International Film Festival in the first eligible year of official competition, among other distinctions.
