Through years of experience with GPS and iBeacon tracking and playing around with storylines we’ve destilled a platform for telling stories. Able to gamify and contextify any story you want to tell.
Ready to be customised with new design for any story or brand, the apps are fully tested and up to date. As well as a CMS which will help the story to be told the best way how.
Literally this means enhancing or amplifying your reality in other words your surroundings. By doing this you can integrate a fictional story with your actual physical reality. Bringing two worlds together enhancing the audio experience.
Through our custom CMS we can easily plot stories on a map. We use both GPS, Wifi and iBeacons for location determination. This way we keep track of your whereabouts and can tell your story uninterupted outside but also inside any building.
Whatever your means of transportation is, our platform will be able to tell your story while you’re underway. When needed our platform can speed the audio up, pitching it back so you don’t hear it. Or our platform automatically starts suggesting next steps to discover more of the story.
By using your microphone in this experience we record your environment and create a seamless audio-mix of pre-recorded sounds and the actual environmental sounds. This engaging effect of this technology is that you’re less likely to take our headphones of and stay in the story bubble.
Distance to each othr or an object can be used as a variable. For instance when users get closer to each other we can adjust volume accordingly by lowering or amplifying the audio. Either amplifying by connecting distance to the volume, or any other effect triggered by proximity / distance. This can mean proximity to a fixed object or in a multi user situation to another user, whose location is dynamic.
By using 3D sound we can make a user experience something in front, or behind or circling the listener. Even though a headphone doesn’t supply us with directional info, our app can read you direction if you’re walking in a certain direction for more than a few steps.
Every time a user listens to the story he or she records sounds at certain intervals. These sounds are then used on the exact same place to be played for later listeners on the same place. Making the sounds relevant and actual possibility of being able to be heard there.
Making use of the microphone we can open up connections between users. Are they really here? Or are they fictional characters? Just picking up sound and reproducing it elsewhere, or actual conversation for others to connect.
Also available offline. You download the story as a user and start wondering away. If your connection fails at any time after the download is complete your experience will not be cut short.
So what is your story? We can help you with the full service from concept, to scripting, to recording, etc.
