Project Avatar


The Project Avatar Experience

Project Avatar represents an innovative effort to bridge the gap between science and entertainment by introducing Optics and Photonics to the STEM community in a novel manner. Our mission serves a dual purpose

First, we seek to captivate young minds- igniting curiosity and cultivating an interest in science to attract a new generation of talent to our industry.

Secondly, we aim to encourage innovation by facilitating collaboration among existing pioneers in the Optics and Photonics field. Through our multi-volume comic series, featuring a captivating sci-fi storyline filled with Easter eggs and pop culture references, we aim to resonate with audiences of all ages. Each volume showcases a different technology (from quantum communications to laser-based additive manufacturing), sparking discussions about the foundations, applications, and limitations of these technologies

Ultimately, the Project Avatar comic series strives to close the divide between science and entertainment by inspiring young minds, fostering innovation, deepening scientific understanding, and contributing to technological advancements in the Optics and Photonics Industries.
