Media Organization: Shared_Studios

Company Description

Portals are gold shipping containers with immersive audio and video technology inside. When you enter one, you come face-to-face with someone in the other container, full-body, and the two of you converse live as if in the same room.

Portals have already connected New York to Tehran, Iran, Washington, D.C. to Herat, Afghanistan and Havana, Cuba.

Since the launch of Portals in December 2014, more than three thousand people have carried on private, 20-minute conversations with strangers from the other country responding to the same prompt: “What would make today a good day for you?” People spoke about their hopes for their children, ailing relatives, dinner plans, pollution, dating, and much more.

Since our launch in December, Shared_Studios’ Portals have been covered by the Washington Post, ABC, CBS, the New York Times, Al Jazeera, NPR and many more.
