Idea

A mobile app where people can connect with cities using Augmented Reality technology to explore around like a local while engaging with multi-lingual character guide and discovering nearby offers.
We're offering a full convergence between physical and digital touchpoints through more personalized, interactive, engaging and efficient OMNI channel experiences.

Current Status

We're currently testing with small groups of users to validate our assumptions and apply user feedback if necessary, however, the app is available to download for the public on AppStore & PlayStore. And in terms of the business side, we're in talks with Tourism authorities in UAE, Dubai Expo, Global Village Dubai, and Dubai Museums.

Advantages or differentiators

Lightweight AR design, hence a wider range of compatible devices. It relies mostly on device’s sensors like accelerometer and gyroscope, instead of heavy computational computer vision algorithms.

Optimized 3D real-time rendering, hence saving battery life.

Minimal UI, straight-forward UX and gamified navigation based on natural human way-finding.

Proprietary ATP (adapted to a path), instead of exact path, using a flying arrow, which follows roads and supports users to find a way in a pedestrian environment.

Business model
