Don’t underestimate the power of your voice. One of the latest London startups to come out of Techstars and Ubisoft’s AI accelerator is Anything World, the no-code platform that allows creators to build 3D worlds simply using their voice. Anything World has a pre-built library of 500K+ 3D models for creatives to choose from, and its proprietary machine-learning algorithm can bring any static model to life through simple voice commands. Anything World integrates with Unity, Google Poly, and other platforms. The company is currently focused on scaling its integrations and recently launched a public Beta. London TechWatch caught up with CTO and Cofounder Gordon Midwood to learn more about the company, its plans to make integrated 3D experiences ubiquitous, and the company’s recent funding round.

By designing in 3D from the onset, the need to sketch and then transfer into clunky CAD software is eliminated. The platform is already being used by over 50,000 design professionals. London TechWatch caught up with Cofounder and CEO Oluwaseyi Sosanya to learn more about how an academic project inspired the launch of the business, future plans, recent funding from investors that include Kindred Capital, Point Nine Capital and Forward Partners, and much, much more…
