The same CrowdOptic technology which boosts augmented reality capabilities in smartphones is now integrated with wearable devices including Google Glass. CrowdOptic is being used to create networks of multiple devices, connected in real time based on their visual line of sight.
These instant networks are joined into live shared experiences. For example, CrowdOptic technology launches instant Google+ Hangouts on Air, where glasses and smartphone viewers merge and share live video feeds of the same action.
The CrowdOptic platform powers a range of focus-aware, interactive applications for marketing, branding and advertising. Enterprises and brands can captivate live audiences and marketers can increase fan engagement with their brand by delivering new experiences that rely on knowing where electronic devices are pointed from moment to moment. These experiences may include augmented reality, chat, poll/vote, find friends, and much more.
CrowdOptic can quantify what people mean when they talk about an athlete’s “vision.” You know it when you see it, but you could not measure it – until now. CrowdOptic comes into play where smart, wearable devices like Google Glass meet team sports. By outfitting players in smart equipment like Google Glass, we can chart and analyze their fields of vision during active play. We are helping athletic departments deconstruct qualities like intuition and instinct in their players, as well as better analyze the game and create new, analytics-powered teaching tools.
CrowdOptic provides news organizations with the tools to automatically curate crowdsourced content from electronic devices pointed at a specified location, in order to assemble a chronology of authenticated photos and videos of a newsworthy event. Our tools locate the source of heat on a dashboard as well as create a beacon for incoming contributions from that same location.
With CrowdOptic Mobile ENG, eyewitnesses are given an instant, direct channel to news outlets to report breaking news in the field, replacing archaic web forms and email methods of news submission with a one-button mobile app that feeds directly into the news outlet or any social media.
