About the Team

The Operations and Manufacturing team oversees the full lifecycle of Orbs and accessories, ensuring excellence from development to production. We enforce high standards in manufacturing and field operations, focusing on quality, efficiency, and the Orb Repair and Refurbishment Program to promote product longevity. Dedicated to reducing downtime and enhancing user satisfaction, our team innovates in technical support and collaborates globally to deliver secure, sustainable, and superior experiences.

About the Orb

Worldcoin's launch requires a "Proof-of-Personhood": a way to determine someone is human (not a bot) and hasn't already claimed their free share of Worldcoin. This is why we developed the Orb.

The Orb is an advanced biometric imaging device, custom-designed for Worldcoin's launch. Orbs are deployed to a global network of operators, who use the device to onboard new Worldcoin users. For more details on how the Orb is part of Worldcoin's privacy-preserving approach to Proof-of-Personhood, see How the Launch Works.

The Orb solves a fierce combination of engineering and UX challenges, centered around image quality, security, and ease-of-use. Each device has an advanced iris imaging system, designed to work consistently across real-world lighting conditions. An additional suite of sensors feeds into an onboard fraud detection system, enabling use in unsecured environments. These systems are combined in a sleek industrial design with a simple, minimalist user interface.
