Augmented Reality

 

Augmented Reality (AR) is transforming the way people digitally view and interact with the physical world. AR works by giving instant feedback for anything the user wishes to identify through a mobile or wearable device. It has begun to change the way apps work one by one, and is forecast to be used by everyone in just a few years.


After creating and fielding a wide variety of custom mobile business apps for our customers, AtLink has created the AtSpot™ Mobile App Development Platform which allows us to rapidly create custom business, marketing, entertainment, and advertising apps for our clients.


AtSpot™ was designed to broadly simplify the development of and support all aspects of Mobile Augmented Reality applications, in addition to handling the more conventional functions of mobile apps such as UI, general commerce, back office, and BI. Mobile Augmented Reality can take an existing image, or live video stream from a smartphone or tablet camera and blends new information to it. The new information can be anything from descriptive text, to 2D or 3D graphics and animations. Mobile Augmented Reality provides a new, captivating and almost limitless way for marketers to engage consumers around a brand.


AtSpot™ has built-in, extensible libraries of 3D objects, animations, and games that support quick prototyping and fast delivery of quality apps for our customers. Currently AtSpot™ supports all Android Smartphone devices and Tablets that run Android 2.3 and above.
