Santa Ana, March 2022: OptoSigma, a global optics & optomechanical manufacturer, launches Project Avatar, a fun and creative platform to promote new technologies within the optics and photonics community by creating a comic book showcasing thought leaders and their technologies. Each volume of the comic book will feature a different technology and industry luminary followed by a video interview with the featured researcher discussing their work in the “real world”.
The launch of Project Avatar, at Photonics West in San Francisco, is the beginning of a multi-year immersive marketing campaign designed to teach our community about the role photonics plays in our world. The story takes place when the Betelgeuse star begins to super nova releasing a high energy Gamma burst that hits the OptoSigma building. After the explosion, a highly intelligent creature named Kazu self-assembles from OptoSigma parts. Kazu learns he has been created on Earth to help humans further advance technology. “We are very excited to launch this new educational platform.” says Scott Rudder, President and CEO of OptoSigma. “We believe it will connect with the Photonics community and be both a creative and fun way to highlight some of the work that our industry’s luminaries are pioneering. The complete “Project Avatar” storyline is already written, and we have made sure to include both jokes and Easter eggs in each episode of the comic to keep the audience speculating as the entire storyline unfolds.”

There is also an exclusive interview with Professor Joseph Kalman, in the department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at California State University, Long Beach.
