Santa Claus To Use Smartphones, NOT Chimneys To Be #COVID Safe – Imagine #AR $IP.ca $IPNFF $DBO.ca $YDX.ca $SEV.ca $NTAR.ca

NORTH POLE, Dec. 1, 2020 – ImagineAR Inc. (CSE: IP) (OTC: IPNFF) Santa Claus knows how important it is to keep children and families safe and healthy, so for the first time ever, he will enter homes of good little boys and girls via their parents’ smartphones, rather than chimneys. Using the free ImagineAR™ app on their phones, parents can bring a life-sized talking 3D Santa directly from the North Pole into their living rooms for photos and videos.

“Yes, it’s true,” said Santa. “The elves at ImagineAR and I wanted to bring some early holiday cheer to children this year, since social distancing has stopped my visits to shopping malls, stores and special events. We wanted to make sure children could still have their yearly photo with me and could even dance with me in their very own homes,” the jolly one said.

Inspired by the distraught 5-year old daughter of a fellow elf, ImagineAR head elf Alen Paul Silverrstieen and his team got to work. “This little girl wanted to visit Santa before the holidays and while she understood it wasn’t safe, it broke Santa’s heart,” said Silverrstieen. “The big guy was quite clear- make it so parents, grandparents and friends can use their smartphone to bring him directly into the homes of children everywhere for photos. We went a step further with Santa’s magic- using the free ImagineAR app and from the phone, folks can even record video of Santa Claus dancing with their little ones in front of their very own trees to share with family and friends!” he announced proudly.

To have Santa drop in to your home, just download the free ImagineAR app in the IOS App Store or Google Play on your mobile device, select “AR Near Me”, select your preferred Santa experience from the bottom of the screen, and Santa will magically appear right in front of you through your phone. The ImagineAR app has multiple Santa experiences to choose from. “In case a half-eaten cookie and empty glass of milk aren’t enough, we can even provide parents with photographic ‘proof’ that Santa was in their home on Christmas Eve stealthily with his big bag of toys,” whispered Silverrstieen.

“I’m an old guy, set in my ways,” chuckled Santa. “Don’t tell anyone, but I’ll likely still use chimneys, too. But my ImagineAR elves have really outdone themselves..Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas! Ho! Ho! Ho!”

The future of live sport – how brands can make an impact with new digital possibilities

  • We’ve seen the already growing appetite for virtual event counterparts accelerate during the lockdown period.
  • Our consumer research found that football fans in the UK are now three times more likely to find the prospect of augmented reality (AR) replays and stats exciting, with younger fans more likely to use these technologies in the near future.

By: Mark Melling, Verizon Media

Digital fan experiences like the NFL’s ‘Watch Together’ synchronised livestream are reinventing the way in which consumers enjoy live sports content.

The absence of live sport throughout the COVID-19 pandemic has been felt strongly by fans like me across the globe. From the pre-game rituals, half-time debrief with friends and the atmosphere within the stadium, fans have been missing out on the communal and experience-led aspect of a physical game.

In response to this, we’ve adapted our strategy and looked at new and innovative ways we can elevate the sports fan experience as well as focusing on the entertainment sector more broadly.

We’ve seen the already growing appetite for virtual event counterparts accelerate during the lockdown period. Our consumer research found that football fans in the UK are now three times more likely to find the prospect of augmented reality (AR) replays and stats exciting, with younger fans more likely to use these technologies in the near future.*

This demonstrates how fans are starting to see the value these technologies bring, and so will be more likely to continue using them to enhance the digital experience – even when live sporting events start-up again.

More broadly, the expectation for consumers is that most offline events will have some sort of digital twin and be augmented by tech in some way. We’re already starting to see this amongst the younger generation, with 83% of UK millennials claiming they expect their digital experiences and interactions with brands online to be seamless, innovative, and to enhance what’s happening in the real world.*

The convergence of online and offline

These sorts of insights have been integral in driving our strategy and the platforms we use moving forward – highlighting the importance of exploring the convergence of online and offline.

As part of this, it’s been important for us to consider two key streams: live events with virtual integrations and virtual events with live integrations. The former will be vital for sport as virtual elements can be incorporated to enhance the offline experience.

For example, better quality video streaming, immersive experiences and real-time virtual reality (VR) and AR overlays that will allow viewers to watch the game from multiple angles – including cameras on the players and referees, so that fans can get a point of view shot and feel more involved in the action.

COVID-19 has been instrumental in accelerating demand for these types of experiences. And technology can help to create communal experiences for viewers, even when they are unable to attend the physical venue to watch the game with friends and family under current lockdown restrictions.

As a result, everyone working within the sports industry – from production and distribution to branding and marketing – has had to adjust their strategy and adapt to bringing digital experiences to the forefront. Much of this technology was already in the pipeline but the global pandemic has accelerated plans due to the need to shift to digital overnight.

NFL partnership: ‘Watch Together’

One of the ways we helped to improve the digital fan experience within the sports industry was through our recent partnership with the NFL to launch ‘Watch Together’.

The new platform consists of a co-viewing experience that enables fans to video chat on their phones whilst watching live games in the Yahoo Sports App in the US. Watch Together for NFL Live on Yahoo Sports will give fans the ability to invite up to three family and friends to watch live local and primetime NFL games on their phones through a synchronised livestream, creating an interactive, virtual experience that lets viewers feel like they are watching the game together. 

On top of this, the new Yahoo Sports game centre experience offers fans the ability to see graphical replays of key NFL game plays in near real-time using its proprietary Next Gen Stats player tracking data. The NFL is the first launch partner for Watch Together, but it could easily be replicated across the whole sport sector and demonstrates the digital capabilities for consuming live events.

These viewing experiences will be game-changers moving forward, even post-pandemic, and will more intrinsically link the offline and online element of live events. This is an incredible opportunity for brands to test themselves. And marketers should be thinking about their engagement strategies now to establish themselves in this evolving world, taking hold of the unique digital opportunities that are arising. 

Supercharging the experience with 5G

This is also where 5G can make a real impact – supercharging the fan experience through rich, real-time and immersive experiences. It will enhance existing technologies and help to cater for the increased demand for online events, while also elevating offline experiences in the future.

For example, e-commerce, social interaction and video replays in between games are all currently available but can be heightened, personalised and delivered in real-time at scale through the connectivity that 5G will enable.

Brands can tap into these opportunities by thinking creatively about ways to bring together the online and offline elements in a meaningful way that will connect with consumers. For live sports – and indeed live entertainment events more broadly – we can expect interactive and immersive experiences to become the norm, with fans looking for new ways to watch the game from their homes.

Brands that do not adapt and help to drive these unique experiences risk being left behind as we hurtle towards a more digitised future.

The Top 5 Industries That Will Benefit the Most From Augmented Reality

By Roger Bishop

Augmented reality and virtual reality get most of their fame from the videogame industry, but the more practical uses are becoming more and more utilized across almost every major industry in the United States. Virtual reality is a complete sensical change from an individual’s given surrounding, and generally involves putting on some kind of encompassing headgear that shuts out what is actually around the users. Augmented reality, on the other hand, utilizes technology created to interact with reality, “augmenting” what is actually already there. One of the simplest examples would be a photo filter on your phone that adds sunglasses to whomever you’re taking a picture of. This article will take a look at 5 industries that can (or are already) benefit from evolutions in Augmented Reality (AR).

Construction

Augmented reality in construction can serve a number of purposes, with two of the most important being in safety and saving money. The U.S. construction business generates more than $1.2 trillion every year, and employs more than 7 million Americans. With that many players in the game, even pennies saved here and there can add up quickly. Recent trends, mainly caused by regulation and availability from the public sector, have shown lacks of productivity in the construction industry caused by poor design, poor management, and lacks in development.

AR models can help identify design issues before building starts, saving time and money, and can also help during construction, showing precise directions regarding certain installations and trades. AR is also being heavily utilized in training, and the construction sector is following suit.

Rehabilitation

The uses for AR in healthcare are aplenty, and growing by the day; however, most uses are still in a “clinical trials” phase to determine what is working and what is not. When it comes to rehab, though, AR is already a proven means of increasing therapy outputs. For PTSD, in particular, augmented reality programs can help patients take very small “doses” of whatever causes their trauma in an attempt to slowly ween them off the fear. For soldiers, this can mean subtly adapting to loud noises in a controlled environment until those noises and interruptions no longer act as triggers for past traumatic experiences.

Nursing

For nursing, training is a part of the weekly grind. From cultural diversity training to new procedures, nurses are permanently learning, and AR is giving them a chance to do so in a much more effective manner. Smart glasses are a new technology that allow nurses to work on a patient while having information about the procedure appear, literally, right in front of their eyes on a glass screen that is something out of a James Bond film. This AR training also allows for nurses to get more experience without actually working on a sick individual.

Education

As a whole, the education sector serves to benefit greatly from AR as well. For trade schools, the possibilities are almost endless, but even general, every day education is enacting some forms of augmented reality into their curriculums. There are many AR apps being tailored for education, and as long as schools can provide equal means of utilizing these technologies among all students, the interactive aspects are expected to help students stay focused, as well.

Video Games

Of course, video games are still the industry that most of us first saw AR in action, with the Pokemon Go’s of the world, and the industry certainly isn’t shying away from AR now that it’s becoming popular in other sectors of business. Global augmented reality is the “new future” and allows gamers to, literally, see things that only exist digitally, all across the actual world we live in and breath on every day.

AR isn’t just ‘exciting’, it’s practical

  • Augmented reality might seem like a daunting new frontier for the average business, but adopting this new technology is a lot easier than it seems
  • With an anticipated 3.8 billion smartphone users in 2021, more people are using mobile tech to experience the world, from enhanced museum tours to Animoji
  • If you haven’t already considered it, AR can be a smart, practical form of smart marketing and branding.

Augmented reality might seem like a daunting new frontier for the average business, but adopting this new technology is a lot easier than it seems. With an anticipated 3.8 billion smartphone users in 2021, more people are using mobile tech to experience the world, from enhanced museum tours to Animoji. If you haven’t already considered it, AR can be a smart, practical form of smart marketing and branding.

First, it’s important to distinguish between augmented reality and virtual reality. Virtual reality is an almost wholly-digital experience that requires special hardware to immerse yourself in a new environment. Augmented reality is a combination of the digital and physical worlds, where the former is often “layered” over the latter. If you’ve used custom Snapchat filters or played Pokemon Go, you’ve already tried AR without even realizing it. 

But the great thing about AR is that it doesn’t require buying new hardware. Virtual reality, while still an exciting new realm, isn’t as widely accessible as AR. For starters, you need pricey new gadgets to play around in VR, but anyone with a smartphone and an internet connection can tap into a well-crafted AR experience. 

“The biggest benefit of AR is the simplicity with which you can build on top of the existing world that a user is already familiar with to teach them new things or show them new information that was previously unavailable,” says Gal Oppenheimer, who manages Contentstack’s Solutions Architecture Team. AR has, for instance, become a huge part of our daily reality, with Zoom virtual backgrounds helping people continue to meet and work collaboratively regardless of their environment. 

Speaking to Oppenheimer and Contentstack’s marketing director Varia Makagonova reveals that augmented reality is a particularly effective, forward-thinking strategy for companies in retail, museums/education, and home improvement; AR works best to convey important, relevant information to customers in a quick, intuitive way. Best of all, it’s surprisingly straightforward to implement, especially if you’re working with an experienced content management team. 

Great AR needs great content 

As a headless CMS, Contentstack leads the way in helping businesses create innovative content experiences. In 2020, blogs and websites are no longer the main avenues of brand communication – modern customer experiences can include everything from chatbots and apps to new types of streaming media. Contentstack helps you adapt to new technology quickly and seamlessly, no matter the platform. 

“When people look at AR, they only see the end experience,” says Oppenheimer. “And what people don’t realize is really there are two pieces to an AR experience. There’s the experience the consumer sees… and that is really just a 3D model, a color map, and a rendering library.” Then there’s the content, which can require just as much attention, depending on the scope of a company’s product lineup. This is where Contentstack comes into play. 

A great content platform needs to be streamlined and easy to use, especially if you’re going to be working with new channels and touchpoints like Augmented Reality applications. With the right tools, it’s easy to build a well-organized, flexible content library that can be used to power all kinds of content-rich experiences.   

And when it comes to retail, that often means making sure you can easily plug in personalization and e-commerce technologies into these experiences. As Oppenheimer points out, “it doesn’t matter if you have the biggest library of content available for your AR application to use. If the customer doesn’t see the one product that they are looking for to try on or learn more about, the app has not done its job for them.” 

Building and tending to a useful content experience doesn’t have to be painful, though. “We have customers that have well over 2 million products in their Contentstack,” Oppenheimer says. “And when they do a release, sometimes that’s 200 products going live the same day… being able to facilitate that process easily, and then making sure that content appears in the mobile application that has all the rich AR content at the end, that’s where we come in.”

Seven virtual and augmented reality application areas boosted by global 5G deployment

By CM Staff

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, Empowering the Future of VR/AR Content Consumption through 5G, covers seven virtual reality (VR)/augmented reality (AR) application areas and their use cases.

The market overview includes the education and training industries, public sector, automotive, manufacturing/engineering and robotics, healthcare, retail and hospitality, and gaming and entertainment. It also highlights the challenges and barriers to industry-wide VR/AR adoption and finds that the use cases for VR and AR across sectors will increase significantly with the growth in global 5G deployments.

“Although the adoption of VR/AR technology outside gaming and entertainment is still in its infancy, immediate work needs to be done to establish the use cases and vision for VR/AR and develop solutions to disrupt the predicted spaces,” said Melody Siefken, information & communication technologies research analyst, in a prepared statement. “Countries at the forefront of 5G deployments are the United States, South Korea, and China, with other countries catching up with either mobile or fixed wireless access to 5G.” Siefken added: “There is an optimistic push for 5G deployments to cater to the rising demand for bandwidth and the need for faster networking speed. With the COVID-19 crisis, there has been a slowdown in the supply chain that could delay 5G deployments, which could ultimately impact the use cases of AR/VR.”

According to Frost & Sullivan’s research, market participants should focus on the following industries to capitalize on immense growth prospects:

  • Education and training: AR/VR could enable remote training and distance learning to create engaging classroom content that accomplishes the same objectives as in-person schooling.
  • Healthcare: Virtual therapy, vital health monitoring and the opportunity to create platforms for training and exploration are benefits of using AR/VR in healthcare.
  • Automotive: Aside from driver assistance and customer experience, there are many emerging application areas for VR in the automotive industry. For instance, VR can provide an alternative to new vehicle test-driving, which is safer and cheaper as it eliminates the need for additional vehicles for test driving.
  • Manufacturing, Engineering and Robotics: The manufacturing industry is being disrupted by the use of VR and AR in design, prototyping, production, prevention of workplace hazards, inventory management, training, and assembly.
  • Public Sector: AR/VR can enhance emergency management, smart cities and defense programs. Disaster preparedness, real-time information overlay, and personnel training are some of the application areas in the public sector.
