Nautilus takes its name from the imaginary submarine in the famous Jules Verne novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The company explains the narrative of the simulation with these words:

“Submarine Discovery Center (SDC) is starting a special mission to unravel the secrets of the hidden deep life. Plunge into the unknown and discover an ocean full of hidden treasure. Join Nautilus for a thrilling journey and face your destiny.”

DOF was founded in Istanbul, Turkey, in 2006 and has been active since then. They’ve won three Shining Star awards in 2013, 2015, and 2019, a prestigious award for Turkey’s simulation and entertainment technologies industry.

The company has offices in both Turkey and the United States. Their technology is being exported to more than 56 countries and has already found its place in over 350 different locations.

In an interview with ATV, Mustafa Mertcan, president and founder of the company, had this to say about the future of this technology:

“As the metaverse concept becomes more available, this technology will be fully infused into our lives over time. We will be attending business meetings with VR goggles. When buying a house, we’ll be able to traverse its corridors in a fully online environment. These types of technologies are highly sought after, especially in China.”

The company has also secured references from big names such as Marvel and Siemens. With their vision of “Engineering Emotions,” it’ll be interesting to see what comes next for DOF Robotics.
