About us

At holoride, we truly believe in the power of storytelling. A story well told ignites your imagination and brings you into the heart of the action. Adding technology into the mix allows us to create completely new dimensions of storytelling with an unparalleled immersiveness. We’re pushing the boundaries of what’s possible because we believe that in-car entertainment should not be limited by screen size or travel time. We’re passionate about cars, media, and technology, which is why holoride is more than “just another” entertainment solution. It’s the future of how we will entertain ourselves while on the go.

Our purpose

Making transit time count. We believe that time is the most precious resource—and commuting shouldn’t waste it. With holoride, transit time becomes valuable time that makes people on the go smarter, happier, and even more productive.

Our vision

Turning vehicles into moving theme parks. The joy of letting go and being drawn into a new world is something that people of all ages share. That’s why the “moving theme park” is the perfect metaphor for what we want to achieve: a mesmerizing environment on the go.

Our mission

Adding thrill to every ride. We’re bringing a new media category to the world: Elastic Content. It links extended reality with real-time motion data to create immersive, adaptive, and—if desired—shared experiences that are never the same twice. Elastic Content delights, excites, and inspires people wherever they want to go.
