Detailed description

AR Ecosystem Arcona is an information space that unites the virtual and real worlds. It is based on a platform that automatically generates a layer of augmented reality on the surface of the planet. It allows you to remotely install and manage any virtual content.

The Arcona Ecosystem creates a Digital Land – a layer of Augmented Reality, uniting the physical and virtual worlds into a single information environment that is perfectly linked to our real world. It is designed for interactive everyday user experience with augmented, virtual and mixed reality multimedia content in real-world locations. Y

You can change the surroundings of the real space around you on the fly with a smartphone, tablet or a headset, such as HoloLens or similar. In this Digital Land anyone will be able to rent a land plot and start doing business within the AR platform. Everything will be controlled remotely, making it possible for you to do business worldwide, without leaving your office. Token holders will bid on and own virtual lots and receive rent payments if their lot is used by other AR programs on the platform.

Problem

From the corporate point of view
The advertising channel market is oversaturated. The traditional media channels are losing their power of communication with their target audience. Advertising industry needs to discover new formats, places and experiences.

From the end user point of view
There is no single tool for users to easily interact with augmented reality.

From the AR developer point of view
Indoor AR projects are easy to build, but outdoor AR projects present a challenge, as developers must travel to the location in order to build it, which significantly increases expenses. 

From the global AR market point of view
There are more than 10 AR platforms, each supporting just one specific AR-enabled device: only smartphones, only smart glasses, only AR headsets, only iPhones, only Android phones, etc. The market is entirely atomized, and a universal, cross-device ecosystem is necessary in order to make fluid interaction between AR content developers, AR apps, content, and end users possible.

From the conceptual point of view
Presently, only professional AR developers can create AR experiences. Therefore, the end user’s only available role is buying and using what others have created, without being able to use his creative potential for building his own AR experience.

Solution

From the corporate point of view
Arcona’s layer of augmented reality is a new space, a new medium for advertising, communication and brand sharing opportunities. There is little space in the real world for new billboards, but there is plenty of virtual space in Arcona.

From the corporate point of view
Arcona in the public information space unites the physical and virtual world anywhere. Arcona offers free access for all users and software functions, allowing them to change the surrounding real space on the fly.

From the AR developer point of view
With Arcona tools you can accurately and remotely place augmented reality objects in a changing environment. No GPS – we use real-world objects as markers:

  • Arcona offers the ability to link virtual content with real landscapes anywhere, regardless of their size.
  • Universal augmented reality environment that connects developers and consumers.
  • Arcona visually combines virtual and real space which also adapts to user’s movements.

From the global AR market point of view
Arcona is a cross-platform solution and supports any device. We provide a shared experience and simultaneous use of devices. Users will be able to see and interact with virtual objects in real-world locations simultaneously and through different gadgets. We bring together developers and users, businesses and customers, and, most importantly, we erase borders between countries. Our decentralized system will operate on every continent and give all participants of the ecosystem equal opportunities.

From the conceptual point of view
The Arcona Ecosystem is of major social significance since it gives creative people an opportunity to present their projects to the wider public. Arcona residents would be able to create and monetize their own AR projects without the need of hi-level programming knowledge (Wordpress and Youtube model).
