Shape Challenge: Learn about the Augmented Network Semifinalists
Would you like to see first-hand what the future of Augmented Networks look like? Then you won’t want to miss attending the Shape Challenge live pitches during Shape, an AT&T Tech Expo. As a reminder, Shape Challenge is an open contest to inspire and celebrate innovation. With more than 1,000 registrations for the Challenge, and the submission period closed, we are pleased to announce the semifinalists for the Augmented Networks category!
AT&T’s vision for our network is not just about connecting two points. It’s about adding capabilities, features, and intelligence into our network. It’s about the services that run over the connection and not just the connection itself. With that in mind, the Augmented Network Challenge invited students, developers, and entrepreneurs to submit their solution for a network or content delivery challenge, whether it’s mobile, satellite, Wi-Fi, or wireline? Examples of augmented network topics include Software Defined Network (SDN), Micro-services, and Virtual Reality (VR) Delivery.
Shape Challenge – Augmented Networks Semifinalists
- Aisle411: An augmented advertising platform located inside stores that uses Google Tango positioning Aisle44 includes digital fingerprints of retail store floorplans which allows shoppers to see augmented offers while in the store.
- LucidCam: An easy to use, pocket-sized 180-degree camera that captures and streams or records events in the way the human eyes see it. The technology consists of advanced software and smart hardware with optimized 3D spherical camera. The advanced software turns on the device with a switch and captures images or video with a one-button click. It then transfers these images or streams to mobile phones where others can watch the footage as virtual reality movies in less than a minute.
- Torch: A user-friendly, Wi-Fi router designed for families that includes simple and intuitive parental controls. With the Torch router, parents can manage all the connected devices within their home. The router includes features such as a pause button for the Internet, customizable bedtimes, filtering, and reporting on which online sites kids are visiting.
- Yopine: A proximity engagement platform that can be used to create and share image-based polls and brainstorms. If your phone is in ambient contact with a Wi-Fi signal, connected or not, you can share content, receive feedback, and engage with others in large crowd settings.
