Kscope17 is just around the corner and it is not a secret that we love ODTUG‘s Kscope since it is a conference geared towards Oracle Developers. This year as we have done in previous years, we worked closely with the conference organizers to bring a unique fun experience. We developed an Augmented Reality game called Kscope GO. The concept of Kscope GO should be familiar to all, since last summer the world saw an unprecedented success of the mobile app Pokemon GO. Here at the The AppsLab we have been experimenting with Augmented Reality for many years and we see great potential in a handful of enterprise use cases. But Augmented Reality is not the only technology used in the game, we are using Bluetooth beacons (Bluecats) instead of just relying on GPS signal, also we are using the mobile phone’s accelerometer (for position) and magnetometer (for compass) to deliver a funner experience.
All you have to do is download the app (iOS or Android), self register and start looking for Kscopémons. Each creature has different points and the top three players with the highest points can win some sweet prices!
First place: DJI Phantom Quadcopter Drone with HD Video
Second place: 360fly 360° HD Video Camera
Third place: WowWee MiP Robot
But that is not all! We will be also on site giving the same IoT workshop we have been giving during Oracle Code World tour. Look for us outside of the ballrooms on level 2, next to the OTN Lounge. We will show you how to get started with the Oracle IoT Cloud and you will be able to take home one of our IoT kits (while supplies last.)
See ya in San Antonio Texas!
