The Company
Born from R&D work with GIPHY, Infinite Objects is a quickly growing New York City based startup building novel and compelling ways to elevate, value, and experience video. We believe that video and NFTs should be appreciated the same way prints and photographs have been for centuries — not just trapped in our phones and laptops. 

Our permanently treated displays have no buttons, apps, or connectivity, and bring scarcity and value to video content in the real world for the first time.

We’ve partnered with artists like Beeple, publishers including CNN, platforms including SuperRare, and events from ComplexCon to Art Basel, and CES. Infinite Objects’ investors including Dapper Labs, Serena Williams, Kevin Durant, Sound Ventures, Betaworks, Courtside Ventures, and more. IO has been included in TIME magazine’s best inventions of the year list for two years running, and has seen press in WSJ, Vogue, Forbes, The Strategist, and more.

Join us in finding creative and cutting-edge ways of defining a new product category for how we appreciate, sell, collect, and value digital content.
