Ubiquity6, an AR platform that strives to create new ways for “people to interact and imagine in the spaces they care about,” raised $27 million in Series B funding led by Benchmark and Index Ventures.

Additionally, the company previewed the rollout of its first public beta experience at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art through PlaySFMOMA, the museum’s initiative that encourages the development of avant-garde and experimental games. The content of the experience was inspired by the museum’s current René Magritte exhibit.

Using advanced machine learning techniques to precisely locate the phone and its physical surroundings, Ubiquity6 has pioneered such technological breakthroughs as the ability to have a massively shared augmented reality experience that persists through time.
