Online PR News – 18-November-2010 – – LIBERTY LAKE, WA -- Gravity Jack and GeoGuides have established a technology-sharing partnership for the purpose of pioneereering new developments in directionally-enhanced search technologies.
GeoGuides will use Gravity Jack's augmented reality and geotagging technologies and patents for object placement, light oscillation markers, and realtime detection/vectorization for instant 3D scene model building.
GeoGuides new technology developments are designed to enhance the Dublin tourism sector through the development of robust local search and location software technology. GeoGuides flagship product, the Intrepid Explorer Platform, allows individuals to point their GPS equip smartphones, tablets or cameras at geographical areas to in order to access information about those areas.
"We're thrilled that our technology will play a role in the ambitious projects that GeoGuides is developing. These are the types of projects that really push the boundaries of technology and move the entire industry forward," said Jennifer Richey, CEO of Gravity Jack, Inc. (http://gravityjack.com/).
GravityJack's outdoor augmented reality solutions allow for objects to be placed correctly into the live video stream and be hidden correctly when a real world object moves in front of it from any generic scene -- without pre-mapping requirements. Current solutions just overlay an object without keeping it relative to the scene or they require a marker.
"We thrive on pushing the boundaries of technology. When others say something is 'impossible,' that's where we step in and take the challenge. We're excited to embark on this technology journey with GeoGuides and discover what is possible," said Richey.
