Explosive Augmented Reality Growth
At the early beginning of the creation of the company, ActiveMe has created its first augmented reality application prototype presented at Google IO in 2013. Since that time, we are keeping an eye on the technology and follow closely the quick evolution of the technology. From mobile devices, smart glasses, 3D depth camera, AR can be used with many different technologies and in many different use cases. At ActiveMe, we work on a large variety of devices and technologies such as ARKit, ARCore, SparkAR, Hololens, MagicLeap, 3D depth camera,… We shed light on the technology for you, advice on the best solution and create the most amazing experience.
Some Use Cases
AR for Entertainment and Communication
Major players such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat have introduced AR into their development platform allowing brands to create direct AR experiences straight from their application. Tell a story worth remembering. Leave a mark with emotional, gamified & fun content.

AR-Powered Solutions for the Industries
There are multiple use cases for industrial AR that are driving its adoption across many different functions in the enterprise, from worker training, logistics, assembly, product design, maintenance, repairs and customer support,… There are also different hardware technologies used in industries such as mobile, tablet and the latest smart glasses which are pretty convenient to keep hands available.
Instead of needing to use specialized apps, users can simply log on to AR-enabled websites to access the same level of functionality. The goal is to make AR adoption significantly more friction-free by using the installed web browser. Although these standards have yet to be established, the implementation of AR in browsers is under active development.
Hardware Augmented Reality solutions
The most commonly used form of AR. Using mobile phone or tablet cameras we can overlay digital imagery on to the real world. Using leading AR platforms enables organizations to reach the widest audience possible for either marketing or training functionality.
Mixed reality headsets overlay holographic imagery and information on to the real world from the users perspective. Utilizing holographic computer-generated imagery we can make complex procedures simple in real time for training or engineering needs.
Combining wall screens and depth camera technology allows for an incredibly new way for users to interact with digital worlds. Typically used for for marketing or large scale entertainment purposes, this is the only type of AR that eliminates the need for headsets or mobile devices.
