IMVU's social avatar Forces Kim Kardashian West's new Kimoji Program

Redwood City, Calif.-based IMVU operates a social media where users may create their own animated spaces.  It generated a proprietary Server Side Rendering (SSR) technology that forces its avatars, also the exact same technology is supporting the latest release of the Kimoji app.

 The program manufacturers approached IMVU to enhance their favorite app and present KimoGIFs.  The Kimoji app and its subsequent upgrades have topped Apple's App Store list of highest-grossing paid apps.

IMVU, the social network with 3D animated avatars, said that it has supplied the technology behind a new version of the popular Kimoji paid app made by Kim Kardashian West.

IMVU was set in 2004 within this digital world trend, but it's interesting to see how it continues to morph and harness its technologies as time passes.

"Kanye and I discovered this remarkable social experience firm, IMVU, and worked with them on producing some of our latest Kimoji layouts and GIFs.  They are such innovators that have helped me really set Kimoji apart," Kardashian wrote on her website.

IOS users can send their personalized 3D Stickers in messaging apps, such as Facebook Messenger, iMessage, and Gmail; both Android and iOS users can create and send 3D Decals within IMVU conversations.  

"With our Server Side Rendering technologies, and with our catalogue of 20 million-plus user-generated 2D, 3D, and VR-ready goods, we're redefining how people communicate professionally," said Brett Durrett, CEO of IMVU, in a declaration.  "Our technology makes it possible for many users to quickly create an infinite amount of highly expressive content starring their customized avatar."
