Ground-breaking BBC app prototype using augmented reality, image recognition and machine learning
As part of an initiative to explore interactive digital technologies, BBC iWonder chose Bolser’s cutting-edge mobile app team to develop an interactive proof-of-concept mobile app.
The app transformed photos of objects taken by the user into an augmented reality 3D view, using image recognition software. Users were encouraged to add content to the AI image and share on line for others to learn and contribute further content. Effectively creating a virtual conversation about a particular object. All powered by the BBC.
The initial target market for the prototype app was BBC employees.
