Subsidised potential for the future
Different sponsors have recognised the innovative power of our idea and offer security through their financial commitment.
The Austrian Research Promotion Agency has supported Locandy in the development of the mixed-reality media player. In the FFG base project (duration 1/2012 – 6/2013), the player was developed and brought to market maturity. The system includes a web portal, an Android and iOS app. The LOCANDY web platform offers the possibility to create, organize and distribute interactive location-based media.
Innovation promotion Tirol
The innovation promotion Tirol supported the project “Beacons and real effects for the LOCANDY mixed-reality media player”. Technologies based on Bluetooth Low Energy were developed, to allow indoor localisation and radiocommunication via smartphones. LOCANDY expanded the mixed-reality media player to integrate these technologies, bridging the virtual and the real world. Users should be able to make changes in the real world through their actions in the virtual world.
