Proxgy aims to provide consumers an experience of what it feels like to navigate the real world like a video game in a first-person view through a 360-degree camera controlled option.

This is achieved by providing the user with a responsive joystick controller on their Proxgy app while an actual human proxy responds real-time to their audio commands and inputs.

Users have an option to receive the live feeds from Proxgy's helmet on their app and view it on their phone screen, though a VR device or cast the feed to some bigger screens for an even more immersive virtual travel and live shopping experience.

Ideated and conceptualized by Pulkit Ahuja, a serial entrepreneur, inventor, and owner of multiple patents and author of two books including financial bestseller "Googled by God", the Proxgy core team consists of a myriad of industry stalwarts from data science, hardware, car rental, travel, marketing, and retail domains.

"Proxgy started as a dorm room service conceptualized for the elderly and other high-risk prone individuals as a pilot in New Delhi during the coronavirus citywide lockdown, wherein these people who were at a higher risk to coronavirus could stay safe at home while their younger, fitter proxgies navigated the city for them live using an off the shelf WhatsApp video call, helping them with their daily chores," said Pulkit Ahuja, Founder of Proxgy.

The concept received such acceptance in its pilot stage that the team has now started expanding Proxgy services across multiple cities and verticals. Proxgies are now available to encompass dedicated tasks like shopping, virtual travel, elderly care, real estate viewing, remote KYC, car servicing, and generic tasks like errands and many other B2B/B2C services.

The Proxgy team has also moved fast and upgraded to proprietary patent-pending technology from the earlier used off the shelf video calling solutions that provided limited customizations.

"These cutting edge technological innovations have helped us create a truly immersive and exceptional augmented reality experience for the end-user. Proxgy is now using 360-degree rotation cameras on Proxgy smart helmets, 3D viewing options, VR head controlled camera movements, and one to many broadcasting abilities to provide the end-user an ultimate mix of the real and augmented worlds right at their home," added Pulkit Ahuja Founder of Proxgy.

Proxgy is currently in beta and is accepting limited users every day. Users can request an early access by visiting www.proxgy.com or downloading the Proxgy android app from Google Playstore and signing up for an exclusive invitation.
