Proxgy: Formed with an energized motto, ‘The New Normal is Here, Be Everywhere!’, Proxgy aims to change the way people navigate through their daily outdoor tasks by hailing a Proxgy through the Proxgy user app which links the user to their Proxgy. Proxgy uses patent-pending technologies to provide live video and audio stream to users via a proprietary smart helmet which has a 360-degree rotatable camera mounted on top. The camera access is controlled by the user via a multidirectional joystick control within the Proxgy user app, giving users a real-time immersive experience of the Proxgy’s surrounding
Proxgy is world’s first Visual Commerce platform. You can now choose to be anywhere across the globe, perform interactive tasks like travel, errands, shopping and more, from your home, office, or your place of zen.
It aims to provide the users 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 traveller 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.

“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.
