Niantic are partnering with Digital Catapult to deliver an AR accelerator programme for its Lightship platform.
The Aim: To create groundbreaking AR experiences that will encourage people to explore the world, together.
The team are seeking 3 ‘challenge owners’ to help shape “best in class” demonstrators scenarios, for the future of AR and in line with Niantic’s vision for the real-world metaverse.
Challenge owners could be:
★ Music & Live Events Organisation
★ Advertising & Entertainment Organisation
★ Travel & Tourism Organisation
★ Local Authority, LEP or Business Improvement District
Niantic will provide £50,000 for each project demonstrator to be created by a UK immersive startup/studio. Digital Catapult will also provide innovation support and immersive UX guidance throughout the development process.
