This week Apple announced its latest phone and operating system to the public. ePlay’s engineers have been using beta versions of the latest software to test and demonstrate how Apple’s ARKit, built into the now public iOS 11, and Mobovivo’s Sports Game Engine work together.
ePlay subsidiary, Mobovivo was was named one of the top innovation companies at the main Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this year in Mashable magazine.
ePlay has already demonstrated the unique AR experience to media, professional leagues, teams, players, broadcasters, and players associations. The platform will allow users to discover athletes and entertainment celebrities at the office, school, gym, park, playground, stadium and trails.
“With Apple’s announcements this week we get a sense of how big Apple thinks Augmented Reality will be, even before Christmas,” says Trevor Doerksen, CEO of ePlay. “We are building our platform to disrupt traditional fantasy sports which forces users to build an NFL or NBA team by selecting a static headshot from list of static headshots – too boring for the 80% of sports fans that are not gamblers. I want to feel like I met the player, shared a fist pump, and a smile, after all if he’s going to be on my team – I want a selfie.”
By bringing Apple, ePlay and Mobovivo technology together this completely unique experience become possible. The new technology will bring a unique AR experience to sports and entertainment fans. Users will be able to take virtual selfies with their favorite actors, NBA, NHL, NFL, and MLB stars and of course purchase digital goods and level ups as they play games.
