OUR STORY: Founded by BC Biermann as an experiment in emerging technologies and academia, Heavy Projects [and its Re+Public collaboration with PAC] has gained an international reputation through pioneering artistic projects in MIXED REALITY. When Managing Partner Chris Nunes and the rest of the team joined the company, TheHeavyProjects.com became HEAVY.IO - a platform for creating and discovering the world's best Mixed Reality experiences (starting with our own). Recognizing the need for scalable tools that would enable other developers to create similarly challenging and inspiring works and products that would bring people together in new ways, HEAVY.IO embarked on a journey to provide these creative projects to the world.
