Parallel Universe is an Israeli technology company that promises video game companies the capability to make Matrix-style games through parallel processing, allowing millions of objects to be tracked in real-time.

Founder Ron Pressler is a software engineer who has been developing simulated environments for the Israeli Air Force. He is part of this summer’s Y Combinatorclass. Spacebase, the company’s first product, is an offshoot of the military technology Pressler developed.

Primary markets for the technology include MMO (massively multiplayer online) games, defense applications and location-based services.
