Delve Into the World of Candytopia With Augmently’s new AR App
About as sweet an AR app as you can get.
Candy-coated mini-theme park Candytopia is now offering visitors a new immersive experience as they wander round thanks to a new augmented reality (AR) app developed in partnership with Augmently Inc.
Using the new Candytopia mobile app on compatible iOS and Android devices, guests at both of its locations in San Francisco and New York can take photos or videos of AR-enhanced installations that make candy and confetti appear to leap off the wall and creatures come to life.
Visitors can even take the candy experience home thanks to an AR-enabled Coaster Set that animates Candytopia’s flying pig and unicorn mascots.
“Candytopia is a mini-theme park that transports guests to an imaginative confectionary wonderland. We strive to bring guests a unique immersive adventure and continue to push the boundaries of the experiential industry as we grow,” says John Goodman, CEO of Candytopia in a statement. “By partnering with Augmently, Inc, and incorporating AR technology into Candytopia, we’re taking the experience to entirely new level and extending its magic for guests so their visit doesn’t have to end when they go home. We think this is the future of experiential and we can’t wait to share it with our community first.”
“We wanted to create a product that people not only wanted to share online, but also in the real world. We believe the coasters will end up not in a drawer but rather be on display in the home to be shared with whomever comes for a visit,” says Ziggy Kormandel, Founder & CEO of Augmently, Inc. “When done right, Augmented reality is a magical opportunity and Candytopia is the ultimate in presenting an amazing experience.
Candytopia is an interactive candy wonderland with over one dozen rooms featuring larger-than-life interactive art installations and full sensory experiences for guests of all ages to enjoy. In addition to the AR features, the app also features functionalities for guests to easily purchase tickets and take part in Candytopia’s hi-def photo ops throughout the experience known as Sugar Rush. for any further updates, keep reading VRFocus.
