Social Augmented Reality Mobile Location-based Service "Sekai Camera" (World Camera)
Their client-side software and web service enable camera-equipped mobile devices (such as iPhones, Android "Google Phones", and other smart-phones) to access informational and entertainment services by creating a "Clickable World" via the use of Augmented Reality (AR) hyper-tags.
These user-clickable tags, which they call "AirTags", are location-based and mapped in the real world. These AirTags can be seen and accessed through the camera view of mobile devices with Sekai Camera software.
Sekai Camera is realized though a combination of technologies, including client-side software deployed on iPhone, Android and other OS platforms, and also highly scalable web computing systems. In addition, Sekai Camera integrates with services provided by mobile carriers, existing data/service providers, and location technology companies, which combined, enable this dynamic location-based information retrieval service.
